Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
In December 2016, Indonesian President Joko Widodo reiterated the Government''s plan to develop seven areas bordering parts of Malaysia, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea to promote commerce, reduce poverty, improve general living standards, and attract workers and their families to help reduce severe agglomeration in Java's major urban centers. One area highlighted is to promote cross-border trade and investment to encourage the economic and social development of areas along the border, as cross-border cooperation opens opportunities for Indonesia's inclusive economic growth objectives and facilitates regional cooperation.
Impact

Indonesia's cross-border connectivity and competitiveness in connected markets strengthened.

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Inception mission was conducted in August 2017 in Jakarta to gain feedback on literature review and proposed methodology. Consultation mission was conducted in NTT and Jakarta in October and November 2017. This included a visit by the team to the Border Control Post at Motaain.

Cross government stakeholder consultations were undertaken alongside financial institutions, NGOs, private businesses and development partners.

This mission resulted in the development of individual reports on (i) transport infrastructure & connectivity (ii) business development and financial services for SMEs . These reports have been integrated into an Interim Report with initial recommendations. This was presented at a joint Focus Group Discussion (FGD) on the 28th February 2018 in Kupang, NTT. The FGD resulted in a request to deepen recommendations on livestock and tourism. Reports on livestock and tourism were prepared, through consultations in May-September and integrated with the interim report findings to create a draft final report. The draft final report was distributed in October 2018 and confirmed through a series of consultations in November-February 2019. Final joint consultations are expected to occur in February-June 2019 to prepare for a subsequent project acting on the recommendations of the final report.
