According to Global Insight (2006), world container trade flow in 2005, East –West was 43%, where Trans-Atlantic: 5.4 million TEU, Asia-Europe: 12.1 million TEU, and Trans-Pacific: 19.3 million TEU; and Intra-Asia was 31% or 26.2 million TEU (including Australia, Indian Subcontinent and Middle East). Meanwhile infrastructure competitiveness, Indonesia’s ranking is 89, lower than East Asian countries (e.g., China, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam).
What should we do to improve the Indonesian competitiveness, particularly in seaport infrastructure? At this paper, I want to describe Indonesian seaport conditions and compare to other courtiers; and I want to introduce a model innovation financial that can be used to improve seaport investment based on my study that published by the 1st IRSA International Institute, ITB.
