Didi revealed, in one of the business forums, he discussed the Government Guarantee instrument combined with a blended finance architecture will improve the implementation of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles in order to encourage active participation of the private sector in building and financing sustainable infrastructure development in Indonesia. This aligns with the main focus of the UAE's investment sector in Indonesia, particularly renewable energy and industries based on good environmental management.

"Through the PPP scheme, the person in charge of the project can access the support of the Ministry of Finance, such as project preparation facilities, feasibility support, which is integrated with Government guarantees, and the Indonesia One SDG platform. All of this support is provided to encourage the active participation of the private sector in building and financing Indonesia's sustainable infrastructure development, following the vision of Indonesia Golden 2045," said Brahmantio Isdijo, Director of Government Support Management and Infrastructure Financing, Ministry of Finance.

The success of Indonesia's infrastructure development cannot be separated from the success of the PPP scheme.
