Strategy

Guided by the government's commitment to "pro-poor, pro-job, pro-growth, and pro-environment" development, ADB’s country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012–2014, for Indonesia aims to support poverty reduction through more rapid, sustainable, and inclusive economic growth.

CPS, 2012-2014, is an outcome of ADB’s consultations with the Government of Indonesia, other development partners, civil society, and the private sector. It is aligned with the government’s medium- and long-term development plans.

ADB will focus its lending and non-lending assistance on six sectors:

  • energy,
  • transport,
  • natural resource management,
  • finance,
  • water supply and other municipal services, and
  • education.

To boost inclusive growth, ADB will support infrastructure-related investments to increase connectivity to markets and improve access to essential services, such as energy, water and sanitation. ADB also aims to increase access to financial services and to strengthen vocational training. ADB will support investments to foster environmental sustainability by improving river basin and water management, and promoting sustainable use of forest resources.

As a large middle-income country, Indonesia’s development priorities and borrowing preferences are changing. As a result, ADB is prepared to be flexible and responsive to changing needs for lending and advisory services. This includes a greater emphasis on knowledge solutions and the sharing of global and regional good practices. ADB will also support initiatives that facilitate regional cooperation. ADB anticipates increasing its private sector and non-sovereign operations to help catalyze private sector investment and public-private partnerships.
