Indonesia

In September 2004 Indonesia elected a new president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who appointed a cabinet containing a mix of members of different political parties and experienced professionals. The new government announced a 100 day-action plan, which contained many promising reform proposals. At this time of political change, IPD was invited to host a Country Dialogue with politicians, the central bank, members of civil society, and international organizations active in Indonesia. The Country Dialogue, held December 10th through 16th, was organized in conjunction with the United Nations Support Facility for Indonesian Recovery (UNSFIR) and the UNDP. IPD helped participants explore alternative policy options for the country beyond the prescriptions offered by the Bretton Woods institutions. The IPD team evaluated a selection of issues in economic policy confronting Indonesia, identified where the debate on these issues stood, and provided alternative ideas.
