Project Information & Monitoring Update


Sulawesi and Nusa Tenggara Distribution Development Project

Eastern Indonesia has enormous potential to spur economic growth sources, in sectors such as fisheries, agro-industry and tourism. However, this potential is maintained in part by the lack of major infrastructure, including electricity. One of the Government's efforts to increase the National Electrification Ratio is by running a program to electrify 433 villages in Eastern Indonesia, especially underdeveloped, frontier and outermost areas (3T) with a strategy of increasing access to electricity through expanding the electricity network.
