Bappenas Invites Public Input for 2025-2045 RPJPN Drafting

NUSA DUA – Indonesia will soon finish its 2025-2045 National Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPN) draft, which will carry with it a vision of becoming a Sovereign, Advanced, and Sustainable Archipelago.

As a strategy for involving the community in the drafting process, of which the plan will become a law by September 2023, a 2025-2045 RPJPN public consultation event was held by the Ministry of National Development Planning/Bappenas in Nusa Dua, Bali on Friday (19/5). The 2025-2045 RPJPN will set out development targets and goals outlined in the Golden Indonesia 2045 Vision.

Bappenas’ Deputy of Economic Affairs Amalia Adininggar Widyasanti explained that the Golden Indonesia 2045 Vision will be achieved through three transformation efforts, namely social transformation, economic transformation, and governance transformation in every region of Indonesia. “It is important to apply the area to new growth centers, acceleration, development and operationalization of existing strategic areas as new engines of growth, as well as completion of inter-island and provincial roads, and to increase intra and inter-regional connectivity in the Papua region and all other regions of similar nature in Indonesia,” Amalia explained.

Meanwhile, Bappenas’ Main Secreatary Taufik Hanafi stated that Bappenas’ commitment to prepare for the 2025-2045 RPJPN in an inclusive manner will involve inviting the broadest possible components of society to provide input. “The planning process that we are going through with the Public Consultation Forum is a very important stage, as mandated in Law no. 25/2004 on the National Development Planning System,” Taufik said.

The 2025-2045 RPJPN will serve as a guideline for the preparation of the 2025-2029 National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN), and the Short-Term Government Working Plan (RKP), and will be elaborated as a guideline for the Draft State Revenue and Expenditure Budget. Coinciding with the public consultation, Bappenas launched a website to accommodate input from people throughout Indonesia.

“We have digitalized the process in the hopes that the input can be well documented, through the website, which can accommodate input or responses from the Indonesian people,” said Bappenas’ Director of Macro Planning and Statistical Analysis Eka Chandra Buana.
