Public or private: Indonesia's recipe for investment

As the government of Indonesia moves forward with a $US 468bn infrastructure investment plan whose purpose is to facilitate the country's economic rise globally, the suitability of the private investment model that is favored by the government to deliver these projects remains in question. Indonesia's vice minister for transportation's goal is to have a railway network which serves as the backbone of not only passenger transport, but freight as well. Three methods of encouraging private sector investment have been established by the government: a public-private partnership (PPP) concession model, special economic zones (SEZ) or free trade zones (FTZ), and operating licenses granted by the government for special-purpose private infrastructure projects.
