This public seminar aims to facilitate a policy discussion on financing infrastructure development in Indonesia. At present, the financing scheme does not support the development of infrastructure that is sustainable. Project financing scheme consists of two main parts; 1) financing and 2) OMI funding. However, in the case of Indonesia, the development of infrastructure projects only estimate the financing part and neglect the continuity of projects and the OMI funding once projects are completed. The financing scheme offered by the government is often not convincing enough to attract private investors due to weak financial feasibility of the project in the long run. Thus, the first session will discuss about different alternatives scheme that can effectively attract the private sectors into these infrastructure projects.

Furthermore, the next session of the seminar facilitated a discussion on the improvement of industrial competitiveness in Indonesia. This seminar will cover issues on competitiveness in Indonesia and also the root causes of these issues such as trade and industrial policies that are still inward-looking. This seminar provided recommendation on how to improve Indonesia’s competitiveness, which can be achieved through active participation of domestic production in global value chain that is strongly supported by trade regime that is facilitating and good investment climate that is more attractive for private sector.
