Minister of Public Works and Housing, Indonesia

After more than six decades of its independence, Indonesia has made tremendous progresses in its economic development. Originating from a traditionally agricultural-based economy, Indonesia has shifted a larger portion of its economic activities toward manufacturing and service oriented industry. Its economic development has also improved the nation’s level of prosperity, which is reflected in its increased income per capita as well as in other social and economic indicators. Although Indonesia’s fundamentals are strong, achieving a high level of growth will not happen automatically. A number of challenges must be overcome in order to realize the sustainable development for a successful Indonesia. There is a development gap between western and eastern parts of Indonesia. The main challenge for a huge archipelago such as Indonesia is the provision of infrastructure to support economic activities. Provision of infrastructure which encourages connectivity will reduce transportation and logistics costs in order to improve product competitiveness, and accelerate economic growth. Therefore, the main issue to be tackled by road infrastructure are connectivity improvement and disparity reduction. By improving the road infrastructure as well as other infrastructures, Indonesia is ready to contribute as the region’s center of economic growth, especially on the era of ASEAN Economic Community. Experience shown that developing road infrastructure without actuating the principal of sustainability could be damaging environment and causing social conflict. The paradigm should shift from the road as a mode in logistic and transportation system to the road as a mode for increasing the value of living. Developing road infrastructure should focus on sustainability and adding value on people’s live. In the 15th REAAA Conference next 2017 in Bali, I would like hear and share the experiences and ideas from all participants related with the above paradigm shift. As the theme of the conference, Roads for Better Living, I would like all of participants to discuss how the roads can improve the living condition, and what kind of added value can be obtained. I belief that all of the information and the result of discussion can be used as a basic for improving innovation on road planning, designing, constructing and management in each countries. During the conference, I hope the interaction between researchers and professionals, business-to-business, government-to-government will be strong, and its will create an opportunity to form strategic partnership or strengthening the network. On behalf of Indonesian Government, I highly recommend that you join us in this Conference to meet the road experts from all sectors and share the latest news for road transportation. I am happy to welcome you and wish you have pleasant moment in Bali.

President & CEO, IRF
Read remarks

Roads are Asia’s first “social network”. They are fundamental building blocks for human and economic development whose impacts transcend national borders. We need to commit to sharing this common good for the benefit of all. The impacts of investments in roads have shown how transformative road infrastructure investments can be for a wide range of communities. People and goods need to move for an economy to grow, for wealth to be created, for prosperity to be shared. Much as a dynamic economy depends on the movement of goods and services, people rely on roads to access employment, education and health services. By contrast, missing road links and inefficient transport services often result in artificially high prices borne by consumers. I am delighted and honored that IRF and REAAA are partnering on an event of this magnitude and significance at a crucial time in the development of the Trans-Asia Highway. The event will provide a unique forum for sharing the latest industry technologies, solutions and best practices from Asia and beyond. I also encourage delegates to benefit from IRF’s exclusive program of certified workshops delivered by world-class trainers. Welcome to Bali and this landmark event.
