Indonesia to Offer PPP Projects Worth $52b

Jakarta. The Indonesian government plans to offer 43 infrastructure projects worth $52 billion to private investors next year, according to an official of the National Development Planning Ministry.

Bastari Panji Indra, a director at the ministry, said the projects will be offered under public-private partnership (PPP) schemes.

The projects offered include airports, monorail and, light rail transits, toll roads, coal transportation trains, ports, and water supply.

The government has published details regarding the projects in the Public Private Partnership Book 2015, which guides infrastructure development in the country.

Speaking on the sideline of Indonesia Infrastructure Week late on Wednesday, Bastari said of the 43 projects, eight are classified as “ready” to be offered, 11 are   “prospective” and 24 are marked as “potential.”

Bastari said the government will offer 10 major airport projects to private investors, including Juwata in North Kalimantan, Tjilik Riwut in Central Kalimantan and Fatmawati Soekarno in Bengkulu.

“Apart from airports, there are also a monorail project, coal transportation by train, water supply and six ports,” Bastari said.

Citing the Public Private Partnership Book 2015, he said the government plans to build an express train line connecting the Halim Perdanakusuma Airport in East Jakarta to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten, in order to ease passenger commuting.

The director also announced a light rail transit system in Bandung, West Java, new train networks for South Sumatra, three water supply projects in Semarang, Central Java; Pekanbaru in Riau, and Pondok Gede in Bekasi.

Bastari also flagged a project for waste disposal processing in Bogor and Depok.

Deputy Minister Dedy Supriadi Priatna, who is charged with infrastructure affairs, said the government plans to revise the PPP scheme to attract investors, including with the introduction of a performance-based annuity scheme.

Under such a scheme, private investors contribute to development, financing and the operation of a project with a given concession time.

Once the project is open for commercial use, investors will receive regular payments for providing the service to the public, with a performance standard agreed to by both parties.

The new government under President Joko Widodo has a lot of research to do into the infrastructure sector.

Poor road and toll road conditions, over-crowded airports, over-capacity ports, and a lack of train networks have been cited as the main stumbling blocks to strong and sustained economic growth.

The previous administration under Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono repeatedly offered infrastructure projects to tender, but only a few have been completed.

Poor preparation of projects, complex bureaucracy and low return in investment for the private sector remain major factors that deter investor interest.
