Background

Indonesia’s GDP growth has moderated to around 5% over the last few years, down from over 6% a decade ago. The Indonesian government is seeking to address this trend in the medium-term by increasing productivity, which could support higher revenues and ultimately higher and more sustainable growth compared to its past industrialization-driven growth.

In line with this objective, ADBI, the Indonesia Ministry of Finance, Asian Development Bank, Government of Australia, UNICEF, and World Bank, will co-host the 9th Annual International Forum on Economic Development and Public Policy under the theme Thriving Indonesia: Reinforcing Strategies to Boost Productivity and Increase Competitiveness.

The Forum will examine emerging growth challenges and fiscal policy strategies for boosting Indonesia’s economic productivity. The focus will be on equipping policy makers to anticipate changes in the global economy and strengthen Indonesia’s competitiveness and development.

Objectives
  • Assess the role of economic productivity in promoting Indonesia’s structural transformation and enhanced competitiveness
  • Identify Indonesia’s productivity gaps and fiscal policies and approaches for realizing higher and more inclusive economic growth
  • Build the capacity of policy makers to address changes in the global economic environment and the implications for productivity and competitiveness
Participants

Around 200 policy makers, experts, and private sector representatives from Indonesia and other countries, including international development institutions

Output
  • Knowledge sharing and deepened understanding of imperatives for raising Indonesia’s productivity and competitiveness
