Unlocking the Dynamism of the Indonesian Private Sector
Unlocking the dynamism of the private sector will be essential to the success of Indonesia’s economic transformation. The private sector must dramatically expand its role in the economy and become the main engine of growth. The private sector accounts for over 90 percent of all jobs in Indonesia, and eliminating obstacles to its development will be critical to enhance productivity, accelerate economic growth, ensure economic and environmental sustainability, and create high-quality jobs.
A more dynamic private sector can also help improve health and educational outcomes, leading to further gains in productivity, wages, and quality of life. The Indonesia CPSD evaluates cross-cutting challenges that inhibit private-sector development, and it proposes recommendations designed to address both these issues and sector-specific constraints in the key areas of financial technology, educational technology, and health services. The CPSD will also support the World Bank Group’s cascade approach to catalyzing private-sector-led growth and sustainable development.
