Achieving successful regulatory reform constitutes one of the most critical issues facing the government of Indonesia. In 2011, the government of Indonesia invited the OECD to assist it in developing a programme of economic policy reforms, including regulatory management, competition policy, governance of public-private partnerships and market openness. Indonesia also participates in the OECD Regulatory Policy Committee and Network of Economic Regulators.
A transparent and comprehensive regulatory framework and the streamlining of the policy‑making process across government is a prerequisite for achieving Indonesia’s economic, social and environmental goals – including those articulated in the country’s Master Plan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia’s Economic Development 2010-2025 (MP3EI). Regulatory reform is also needed to ensure Indonesia’s competitiveness both in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Economic Community and globally.
The 2012 OECD Review of Regulatory Reform: Indonesia presents recommendations for the government of Indonesia to strengthen existing systems to improve the co-ordination of regulatory management practices and establish clear policy frameworks and institutional responsibilities for regulatory reform. The Review includes a focus on regulation of ports, rail and shipping as well as public-private partnerships in infrastructure that support connectivity between Indonesia’s economic corridors and internationally.

Building on the recommendations of the Regulatory Reform Review of Indonesia, the OECD is supporting the government to develop of guidelines on public consultation in rule-making processes. The guidelines aim to improve the quality of public consultation conducted by ministries and agencies in regulatory processes, as well as enhance the consistency of the approaches between different ministries and agencies – thus supporting improvements in regulatory quality and trust in rule making processes.

In delivering this work, the OECD works closely with a number of central government agencies including the Cabinet Secretariat (Sekretariat Kabinet), Co-ordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs (Kementerian Koordinator Bidang Perekonomian), Ministry of Finance (Kementerian Keuangan), National Development Planning Agency (Badan Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional), Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Kemeneterian Hukum dan HAM) and National Legal Development Agency (Badan Pembinaan Hukum Nasional).
