The government spending on infrastructure rose significantly from IDR 154.6tn (USD 13bn) in 2014 to IDR 394.1tn (USD 27.2bn) in 2019 or approximately multiplied by 254.9%. The budget size straightforwardly represents Indonesia’s high ambition for infrastructure expansion which includes among others: 3,432 km national roads, 1,852 km highways, 65 dams, 41,1 km bridges, 38,431 hectares of urban slum revitalization, 559,660 units of public housing equipped with a drinking water system, 27 seaports, and 10 international airports.
