Indonesia: Inclusive Growth through Improved Connectivity Program (Subprograms 1 and 2)

Evaluation Document | 20 December 2018

Reforms under the Government of Indonesia’s National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2010–20 supported the government's long-term Master Plan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia's Economic Development (MP3EI), 2011–2025. This plan had three pillars: (i) the development of six economic corridors, (ii) the improvement of domestic and international connectivity, and (iii) the enhancement of human resources and technology. The Inclusive Growth through Improved Connectivity (IGIC) Program focused on the second pillar, since it followed ADB’s country strategy for Indonesia, and provided a platform for coordinating the programmatic support of ADB and other development partners. The government, through Presidential Regulation No. 32/2011, established the Committee for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia’s Economic Development (KP3EI) to coordinate the implementation of the MP3EI.

The IGIC program was designed to support the government’s logistics and infrastructure policy and institutional reform to improve domestic and international connectivity toward higher and more inclusive economic growth. The program provided a total of $700 million policy-based loans disbursed in two subprograms (SPs)—SP1 and SP2—and included about $1 million for technical assistance. The IGIC program addressed institutional and infrastructure constraints in improving inter- and intra-island and international connectivity.
