AIFEDs have become an important avenue in providing inputs for public policy making in Indonesia since 2012. In 2012, the AIFED’s theme was financial stability that has successfully encouraged stronger coordination between the Ministry of Finance, BI, OJK, and LPS in maintaining financial sector stability. In the following year, with the theme “Avoiding Middle Income Trap” the event provided important input for the preparation of the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2014-2019 and the Financial Note and Budget Plan (NK dan RAPBN) 2014. The 2016 theme on “Unlocking Public and Private Investment” has provided a strong support on the implementation of the asset securitization program to accelerate infrastructure development. The 2017 AIFED on “Technological Change” has also led to intense discussions regarding the current technological issues and their implication to the economy. The latest AIFED event in 2018 provided valuable inputs on the strategy for structural transformation in the Indonesian economy. This year, AIFED will explore issues related to new strategies to enhance Indonesia’s productivity and competitiveness to support higher economic growth.
