The Indonesian government hopes improving infrastructure and developing science and technology under a new master plan for economic development will help Indonesia become one of the world's top 10 economies by 2030.

Six economic corridors make up the crux of the plan that details a set of government priorities for the next 15 years. It is designed to push per capita income to between $12,855 and $16,180 by 2025 and to $26,000 by 2030. It is now just above $3,000

According to the master plan, six regions will be designated as main economic corridors.

Sumatra will be developed as an agricultural and national energy center, while Kalimantan will focus on mining and energy, Sulawesi-North Maluku on agriculture and fisheries, Bali-Nusa Tenggara on tourism and supporting national food self-sufficiency, Papua-Maluku on natural and human resources, and Java on industry and services.

The master plan also prioritizes eight sectors: manufacturing, agriculture, fisheries, mining, tourism, telecommunications, energy and industrial zones.

Realizing the master plan would require $932 billion in investment until 2030. The first stage, which will end in 2014, will cost around $76 billion for infrastructure, with the second stage requiring $856 billion until 2030.

Edwin Utama, from Boston Consulting Group, the project manager tasked with developing the master plan, said the amount of investment required would necessitate plenty of private participation.

"The private sector will lead this development, while the government will act as a regulator, facilitator and catalyst," Edwin said. "As much as 90 percent of the funding will come from the private sector and the remainder from the government."

Under the public-private partnership program, he said, the government would provide incentives and minimize risks to help lure investors.

The government has also offered state and private companies from Japan the chance to participate in the master plan. The Japanese government would provide funding and advice on coal, geothermal and related infrastructure projects, and firms such as Sumitomo, JGC Corp., Electric Power Development and others would cooperate with Indonesia on power projects.

This year in Thailand-what next?

04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
