Description FPEMP supports the government's commitment to reduce household income inequality, and represents a medium- to long-term partnership between the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the government. The government's priority areas to reduce income inequality include (i) aligning medium-term expenditure and programs with its national medium-term development plan (RPJMN) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets, (ii) enhancing the national public expenditure systems to improve quality of spending, and (iii) improving fiscal transfers and subnational governments' spending to promote better public service delivery.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Indonesia is facing the twin problems of a prolonged economic slowdown and rapidly rising household income inequality. Economic growth has steadily declined from 6.4% in 2010 to 4.8% in 2015, and is expected to remain only slightly above 5.0% in 2016 and 2017. Growth slowed initially because of falling commodity prices, which then fed back into lower growth in the non-resource sector, while new sources of growth have yet to emerge. The economic slowdown, combined with persistent volatility in the global financial and commodity markets, also translated into lower fiscal revenue collection, which in turn challenges the government's efforts to stimulate the economy. Revenue collection fell by 9.8% from January to April 2016, compared with the same period in 2015, and the government expects a shortfall of $16.7 billion in 2016. Given the constitutional limit on the budget deficit at 3.0% of gross domestic product (GDP), falling budget revenues impose constraints on the government's spending in the social sector and for infrastructure, even though these are necessary to overcome the income inequality problem. ADB analysis shows that expenditure on education and health is most sensitive to declines in revenue and to overall deficit levels, despite the government being legally required to allocate 20% of the budget to education and 5% to health.
