Making public institutions interface effectively with private capital is a key priority for Indonesian infrastructure and directly impacts the ability of GOI to drive PPPs.

The work identified for the Project are grounded in the priorities identified within the World Bank’s CPF, which focuses on the “Delivery of Infrastructure” as a central target for the World Bank’s engagement in Indonesia, and how PPPs can be used to reduce the country’s investment deficit.

The Project Development Objectives (PDO) is to assist Indonesia in closing its large public infrastructure gap by supporting the flow of private capital into infrastructure development and improving the institutional, legal and regulatory framework to enhance the ability of private capital and public institutions to work together for infrastructure development. The Project is designed to develop operational, ready-to-implement next-steps toward a robust infrastructure and PPP financing market in Indonesia. Among other things, the Project will clarify specific legal and regulatory provisions and corresponding operational policies and procedures; enhance inter-agency coordination and develop skills and capacity of national level agencies (MOF; KPPIP; Bappenas; Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs (CMEA) and Government Contracting Agencies (GCAs) vis-à-vis public sector and PPP financing of infrastructure; and help prepare a small number of well-structured PPP projects for market bidding.
