Indonesia's ambitious Master Plan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia Economic Development or MP3EI, aims to promote geographically dispersed growth by establishing seven economic corridors across the nation.  This review assesses whether they can contribute to the realization of such a vision, and makes recommendations about future strategies and actions.

The study was commissioned by the Ministry of National Planning (BAPPENAS) and the Ministry of Education and Culture through the Analytical and Capacity Development Partnership (ACDP) program, which is funded  by the European Union and the Australian-AID and administered by ADB.
