East Asia and Pacific — Indonesia

Client: Global Affairs Canada

The NSLIC-NSELRED project aims to increase employment and incomes for poor men and women in Indonesia through a strengthened investment climate with more sustainable and competitive enterprises. Working with the Indonesian Ministry of Planning and other core ministries, the project addresses key constraints in business regulations, promotes regional economic cooperation, supports coordinated national support to local and regional economic development, and increases access to business development services. More specifically, the Project trains and advises national and local government officials in regulatory reform and economic development planning that use mechanisms such as inter-regional cooperation and public-private partnerships. It assists the development and implementation of economic planning and coordination tools used by the Local and Regional Economic Development Support Facility and provides funds for innovative local government programming that support enterprise development.
