Indonesia’s successful democratic transition and strong economy have made the country a major political and economic power in both Southeast Asia and the broader region. Indonesia is now a key strategic and economic partner for the United States, as well as Japan and other countries in Asia, and has played an increasingly important role in shaping the future of the Asia-Pacific.

Energy resources and exports are a critical part of Indonesia’s success story and have helped raise levels of prosperity across Asia. However, rapidly rising energy demand, ongoing energy subsidies, and declining production have begun to erode this progress.

With these concerns in mind, topics to be discussed include:

  • Indonesia’s energy outlook, critical policy and market challenges, and major developments under the Jokowi administration
  • The country’s evolving coal, gas, and electricity nexus, and how stakeholders are seeking to manage the balance between affordability and sustainability
  • Key questions for promoting oil supply security
  • Efforts to strengthen environmental policymaking
  • Implications for the United States and Asia-Pacific
