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.
