Regional Development in Indonesia

 “As one can read in the papers of this book, the problem of regional development in Indonesia is very diverse. Each region has its particular potential and problems. As the Minister of National Development Planning I hope each district can identify and explore the potential and problems of their regions. In this way, the advantages of these areas can then be taken in synergy with one another. Eventually, the ultimate goal of regional development is the creation of integrated domestic economy strength.”
Armida S. Alisjahbana
President of Indonesian Regional Science Association (IRSA) and Minister of National Development Planning
