Indonesia has the largest economy in Southeast Asia and hosts some of the world’s most diverse natural resources spread across more than 17,000 islands. Yet, almost half the population lives on less than $2 per day. Indonesia’s growing economy, young democracy and strategic location in the region make it an important trade and security partner to the United States.
USAID works with the Indonesian government, local leaders, academia, the private sector, civil society and development partners to help Indonesia realize its national development goals and emerge as a stronger partner in addressing fundamental global challenges. The close bilateral relationship is reflected in the U.S.-Indonesia Comprehensive Partnership signed in 2010 to deepen ties between the two nations.
