Infrastructure

In its first year in power, Indonesia’s new government has launched a major drive to boost the nation’s transport, power and water infrastructure. The administration in Jakarta is taking a leading role in helping to overcome the challenges facing the industry, and the private sector has been given a clearer, more efficient legal and administrative framework within which to operate. Many of the projects on the agenda are in the midst of securing financing, while others are still being planned or debated. The new public-private partnership (PPP) unit is expected to publish a PPP book during 2015 that will outline the projects that are open to investment and their expected timelines. This will create significant opportunities for private investors to get involved in the early stages of the country’s massive infrastructure overhaul.
