Indonesia boasts the largest economy in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and the 16th largest worldwide. The country has recorded strong economic growth over the past 6 years, and has made significant strides in reducing the incidence of poverty. The new government has pledged to enhance the country’s competitiveness by accelerating infrastructure development, improving human resource development, and implementing bureaucratic reforms.

ADB adapts its support for Indonesia to reflect the complex development needs of a rapidly evolving middle-income country. The focus of assistance has moved from an emphasis on agriculture in the 1970s, to energy, urban infrastructure, and education in the 1980s, to finance sector reform and resilience in the late 1990s.
