The real GDP growth rate in Indonesia reached 6.5 percent in 2011, the highest it has been since the Asian financial crisis of 1997 and 1998. Given the 240 million population, firm private consumption and investment expansion are expected going forward, and the Indonesia's presence as a driver of the ASEAN regional economy is becoming stronger. In recent years, the demand for improvement in the investment climate, including infrastructure, has grown steadily, but investments in infrastructure are not keeping pace with economic growth. To solve the lack of infrastructure, particularly severe in the capital area, JICA has been initiating the study on master plan for establishing Metropolitan Priority Area for Investment and Industry (MPA) in JABODETABEK (Jakarta metropolitan area) Area since 2011. To promote the participation of private enterprises in building infrastructure, JICA is also supporting to improve public-private partnerships (PPP) scheme. JICA also cooperates in various areas, such as disparity reduction, disaster management, and climate change.
