Collaborative Governance in Investment Programs in Makassar City


Collaborative governance encourages cooperation and active participation among various parties. This study aims to analyze collaborative governance in investment programs in the city of Makassar. It uses a qualitative descriptive research method. Data collection was conducted through in-depth interviews, observations, and documentation studies. The research participants were actors involved in the investment program. Data sources included primary data obtained from observations and in-depth interviews, while secondary data were obtained from document searches. The results show that the collaborative governance process in the investment program in Makassar City is going well, as can be seen from the routine face-to-face dialogue as well as the trust that is built through the provision of information and evaluating services. Joint commitment is achieved by carrying out duties and functions. However, there are still apparatus human resources that have not participated in investment management training, which hinders the optimal implementation of the program. Meanwhile, shared understanding has been built through joint deliberations as a form of constraint discussion. The results of the investment program can be seen in the annual increase in domestic and foreign investment.
