Description

The Development Policy Support Program was conceived in support of the Government’s Medium Term Development Plan (MTDP) for 2004–2009, which had two broad goals: (i) stimulate higher and sustainable economic growth through better fiscal management and an improved investment climate, and (ii) reduce poverty and unemployment by reorienting public expenditures to productive needs and strengthening governance in public financial management.

Supported by a $200 million single tranche operation, the program’s key achievements are the upfront implementation of the core policy actions. The program supported the development and building of full government commitment for a forward-looking program that deepens the reforms in the core areas, while striving to strengthen public service delivery to the poor.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the program which aims to enhance macroeconomic stability, improve investment environment, more financial stability and greater accountability through efficient public financial management in Indonesia. IED overall assessment: Successful
