Transmigration: looking to the future.

  • J Hardjono
  • Published 1986 in Bulletin of Indonesian economic studies


The probabilities that the Indonesian government will reach its target of resettling 750,000 families from Java and Bali to other parts of the country during the course of the present development plan (Repelita IV), which extends through 1988-1989, are assessed. Problems encountered in the implementation of previous transmigration programs are reviewed. The author concludes that the government may well decide to focus on quality rather than quantity in the implementation of its transmigration policies.
