Progress Toward Outcome

On the social security reform side, ADB is processing the hiring of two local actuaries (health and pension) to work with the Risk Management Unit of the Fiscal Policy Office. The actuaries will create an actuarial model for health, validate the model, conduct sensitivity analysis, and provide inputs to the EA on potential implementation and operational risks, including supply side issue of health reform. They will also udpate the White Paper with the new 2010 census data, validate the old ADB actuarial pension program, provide sensitivity analysis of the revised program, and provide inputs to the EA on potential implementation and operation risks.

On the economic capacity building, ADB has engaged an international consultant to set up a consistency framework model and to construct an Exchange Market Pressure (EMP) Index for Indonesia. The consultant will also design and deliver sustainable training and capacity-building programs on macroeconomics and international economics to staff of FPO and other relevant departments. This will include Preparation of Lecture Notes and Workshop database and delivery of Lectures and Workshops in Jakarta.
