Indonesians have earned the right to be confident and optimistic about their country’s future. Sixty years ago, at Independence, Indonesia was one of Asia’s poorest nations; Indonesia is now a middle-income country. With confidence comes courage: Indonesians have forsaken strong authoritarian leadership for less certain democracy and decentralized power. Progress is evident in bustling, prosperous cities that are already part of the future. But there is another reality in Indonesia; half the young men and women live in rural villages on less than $2 a day – and the way forward for them is unclear. Although their country is progressing, young rural Indonesians are wondering when good fortune will come to them, to their family, to the 115 million Indonesians who still fear poverty. USAID/Indonesia’s Program Strategy for 2009-2014 responds to the promise
of Indonesia’s remarkable democratic transformation: a strong, prospering and inclusive nation. The strategy calls upon U S. and Indonesian resources to diminish Indonesian poverty and to mitigate global threats. Investments to carry out this Plan are the centerpiece of a broader U.S.-Indonesian Partnership proposed by President Yudhoyono. [authors abstract]
