Spatial Dichotomies in Indonesia's Regional Development
AbstractFor many years there has been a debate about the extent to which large spatial gaps in development exist in Indonesia, especially between the eastern and western parts of the country. To contribute to this issue, this study examines the significance of Indonesia’s spatial development distribution using regional GDP per capita and the Human Development Index as development indicators. Although the results from this study confirm that there are clusters of high and low developed areas within Indonesia, clusters of high regional GDP per capita are spreading in mining areas in both eastern and western Indonesia. Nevertheless, the distribution of the HDI confirms to some extent the existence of a spatial development gap in Indonesia.
