Thematic Sessions

Public Private Partnership

 

The slow growth in developed economies as the aftermath of the global financial crisis is significantly reduced the share of government’s budget allocated to build, maintain and operate new infrastructure. this limit the government fiscal capacity in addressing the infrastructure investment. As one of the solution to solve the problem on public infrastructure investment, governments can maximize funding streams through public private partnership (PPP).

In Indonesia the PPP was regulated under the presidential regulation Number 38. The Government of Indonesia has also prepared facilities to encourage public private partnership scheme for Infrastructure delivery in Indonesia. Government Guarantee, Project Development Facilities, Availability Payment scheme, and Viability Gap Fund are several said facilities. That being said, the implementation of Public Private Partnership in Indonesia still face many challenges from multiple aspects. The ecosystem for Public Private Partnership in Indonesia still need to be improved and perfected so it can accelerate the Infrastructure Provision efficiently and effectively.

Asset Recycle

 

Infrastructure development has been a key factor in driving economic performance and social development of countries. Unfortunately, the slow growth in developed economies in the aftermath of the global financial crisis has significantly reduced the share of the government’s budget allocated to the building, maintaining and operating new infrastructure.

One of solutions to solve the problem on public infrastructure investment, governments can maximize funding streams through selling existing assets and recycling the proceeds for new infrastructure. An asset recycling strategy involves two well-known activities – divesting existing assets to a private consortium and investing in a new infrastructure asset.

Accelerating Smart & Sustainable Infrastructure

 

Financing issue had been one of the major issue in developing both smart and sustainable infrastructure. With the current limited fiscal capacity, it is difficult to achieve and implement the smart and sustainable infrastructure especially in Indonesia. Therefore an alternative financial option was required. In this recent year, several new financing methodology was introduced, one of the example was the green finance.

The idea of green finance was to support the sustainable project development through specific financing, that focusing in the environmental benefit. Different from the conventional project, sustainable project are usually had lower rate of profit, or barely profitable with longer term of investment. By using the green finance, it is expected that we were able to direct funding from the environmentally conscious party at lower cost.

Improving Project Preparation

 

Global population is expected to increase to almost 2 billion people, these increase of course will need to be followed by infrastructure development, especially in the basic, connectivity and urban infrastructure. UNDP estimate that to fulfill the required infrastructure and the sustainable development goals, an increase in infrastructure investment are needed. To fulfill this gap, participation from private sector are required.

Mobilizing private fund pose a major challenge, there is a gap between the demand and the supply side, which was caused by non-uniform information and information diffusion across involved institution. one  way to bridge the information gap and boost the infrastructure development was by improving infrastructure project preparation. This improvement can be done by by introducing a robust and transparent infrastructure planning and pipelines.
