Indonesia’s government is setting a US $ 20 billion budget for transport and energy sector development.
The country’s president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, said the government plans to build 559km of new roads as part of a new transport infrastructure program. He said this would contribute to the country's economy growth as well as well as close a standard of living gap between people living in cities and those in rural areas.
