Overview

Led by President Joko Widodo, Indonesia is in the midst of a US$470 billion five-year infrastructure spending drive to boost the country’s economic growth. With some 265 projects in the pipeline involving roads, railways, bridges, power stations and more, the opportunities for investment are significant. However, mobilising the much needed private capital is challenging, despite major efforts to streamline the complex regulatory and business landscape. What are the next steps for Government and the industry to create an enabling environment for greater private sector participation in the delivery of this ambitious infrastructure plan?

The Financial Times in partnership with the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, will host an exclusive dinner bringing together the stakeholders key to defining the future of Indonesian infrastructure investment. This invitation-only event will examine the progress made to date in securing private funding, looking at projects completed and underway and considering the upcoming pipeline. Our expert panel of speakers will share their views on how to tackle the major issue of project bankability, to overcome real and perceived investor concerns around transparency, risk sharing and regulatory frameworks. The Public Private Partnership model will also be discussed in detail focusing on its implementation in Indonesia as a vital solution to deliver the private capital and technical expertise the country requires.

    Leaders Discussion: Critical building blocks to enhance the bankability of PPP infrastructure financing in Indonesia

    The PPP model has long been recognised as a key solution to deliver both the private capital and technical expertise required to meet Indonesia’s significant infrastructure needs.  And while major steps have been taken by the Government to create an enabling environment for PPPs, ongoing issues around land acquisition, overlapping regulations and the lack of a solid project pipeline continue to impact investor confidence in the market.  How can these challenges be addressed?  What progress is being made by policy makers to build project delivery capacity, streamline the regulatory frameworks and redefine the PPP approval process?  Which sectors are proving to be the most bankable to investors, and why?  To what extent do the Government and private sector need to collaborate towards equitable risk allocation on key developments?  How important will consistency in policy, and transparent procurement processes be to attracting infrastructure funding and expertise to Indonesia?
