Container Sea Transportation as part of the Masterplan for Economic Acceleration and Expansion in Eastern Indonesia


In order to support sea transportation services, the development of industrial processing (to keep pace with demand) must be included into the integrated economic strategy or economic corridor in the Masterplan for the Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia’s Economic Development in the East. Indonesia also plays an increasingly large role in the global economy and a number of bilateral trade agreements. This is reflected in the improvement in Indonesia’s debt rating when the ratings of other countries have actually decreased. Through the MP3EI steps, the acceleration and expansion of economic development will place Indonesia as a developed country in 2025 with a per capita income of USD14,250-USD 15,500. To achieve this goal, real economic growth is needed of around 8.0%-9.0% per year between 2015 and 2025.
