Bandung Metropolitan Area (BMA) is home to 8.6 million people and is Indonesia’s second-largest urban agglomeration. Rapid growth has created a number of challenges for the city, including traffic congestion, air pollution, municipal solid waste and water access and management. The BMA also faces several acute disaster risks primarily related to flooding and seismic activity. The area will need to address these challenges in order to continue sustainable development and to benefit from its environmental assets.

L’Indonésie a connu une transformation extraordinaire ces deux dernières décennies, et bénéficié d’une croissance vigoureuse qui a permis de sortir des millions de gens de la pauvreté et d’accomplir des progrès notables sur le front de la santé et de l’éducation. Toutefois, l’insuffisance des dépenses publiques et des recettes fiscales nuit à la qualité des services sociaux et aggrave les déficits dans les infrastructures, selon l’OCDE.

This report provides four regulatory strategies for consideration by policy makers in Indonesia, in order to support their efforts to improve listing and corporate governance standards.
