Indonesia receives infrastructure funding

By Sarah Ann McCay01 December 2013

Indonesia is to receive a US$ 400 million loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to help it improve infrastructure and transport regulations.

The funds will be used to address weak transport connectivity and poor logistics, among other developments aimed at kick-starting its economy.

The ADB loan covers the second phase of a programme to strengthen regulatory frameworks for transport and logistics, increase investments in the transport sector, boost domestic connectivity, and enhance international connectivity by making the country's ports more efficient in handling traffic and trade volumes.

Funding will also be invested into improving inter-island links between poorer eastern parts of the country with growth centres and markets in the west.
