Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Indonesia as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.

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.

The Government of Indonesia and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) have been working together since ADB’s foundation year of 1966. ADB has approved $30.19 billion in sovereign and nonsovereign loans, $432.06 million in technical assistance, and $429.98 million in grants for Indonesia. The current country partnership strategy (CPS) focuses on inclusive growth and environmental sustainability. Sectors receiving priority support include natural resource management, education, energy, finance, transport, and water supply and other municipal services. The CPS supports two of Indonesia’s medium-term development goals: economic development and improved welfare of the people; and better governance.
