Indonesia has made considerable progress over the years in improving the social conditions of its population, especially among disadvantaged groups, not least by raising government spending and strengthening social protection programmes. Nevertheless, in some respects social outcomes remain sub-par in relation to regional peers. Renforcer l'efficacité des politiques sociales en Indonésie Au fil des années, l’Indonésie a réalisé des progrès considérables dans l’amélioration des conditions sociales de sa population, notamment des groupes défavorisés, surtout en augmentant les dépenses publiques et en renforçant les programmes de protection sociale. Néanmoins, les résultats restent à certains égards en deçà de ceux enregistrés par d’autres pays de niveau comparable dans la région.
