1 CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION The region-based national development not only requires economic expansion as a whole, but also balanced economic and social development throughout the country. Furthermore, it is important to develop industrial estates in every area in Indonesia which delivers positive economic impacts like regional development. Sentolo Industrial Estate development was proposed for several years, but unfortunately it had not implemented yet. The length of time of the implementation process made the author wanted to explore the Sentolo Industrial Estate development process. More information on the background, objectives, and benefits of this research will be discussed as follows. 1.1 Research Background The Importance of Industrial Estates for Regional and National Development In order to accelerate and expand economic development in the regions, the development of centers of economic growth in economic corridors is done by utilizing the potential and advantages of the region, including the development of industrial estates. Industrial estate development has become one of the government's main programs for developing regions through the development of strategic areas. The policy for the strategic area of economy is done through 1

2 development of basic infrastructure, human resources, and connectivity to and within these strategic areas. To raise investment, a region has to find investors that will provide capital. The most effective way to attract them is by establishing industrial estates. Indonesia regulates that industrialization needs to be promoted through development of industrial estates (Law No.5, 1984), and identifies industrial estates as devices to environmentally sound industrial development by facilitating and attracting investments (Government Regulation No. 24, 2009). The Government Regulation No.24 specifies the purposes of industrial estate development as follows (Article 2). a. Control utilization of land spaces. b. Enhance development efforts of environmentally sound industries. c. Accelerate regional industrial growth. d. Enhance industrial and investment competitiveness. e. Assure planned location and infrastructure development with proper coordination among related sectors. It also prescribes multi-layered institutional arrangement with respective responsibility throughout the development up to the management and operation process in which the licensed Industrial Estate Corporation (Perusahaan Kawasan Industri), which takes the form of either an independent entity owned by the central or local governments, cooperatives or private institution (Article 15 (2)), should play a key role in developing and managing industrial estates (Article 1). Local governments represented by the governor are assigned to provide incentives, 2

3 support land acquisition for the estates, direct industrial entities into industrial estates and render integrated services (Article 6). On the other hand, central ministries (Article 5) should take charge of general coordination including preparation of regulations and organization of the National Team of Industrial Estates (Tim Nasional Kawasan Industri <Timnas-KI)> (Article 5) inviting representatives from central and local governments involved, related industrial association, chambers of commerce and industry and other parties nominated by the minister to coordinate jointly monitor and evaluate progress of industrial estate development. Following this institutional framework and guidelines provided by the Government Regulation No. 24, Indonesia has been advancing industrial estate development and seventy seven estates throughout the country have been developed up to the present. However, Indonesian industrial estates have not been effectively striving yet as powerful drivers of regional economic development with limited numbers insufficient to affect the total economy.

This region has the potential of industrial products, which include industrial processing of agricultural products, handicrafts, processing, services, or otherwise, either of micro, small and medium that until now this potential cannot be developed optimally. The development of this potential should be optimized through the establishment of Sentolo Industrial Estate, which is expected to become the center of the new growth in Yogyakarta that can accelerate the growth of the region, especially for the future in Kulon Progo. This area is planned to be developed an International Airport, a fishing port of Tanjung Adikarto, and development of industrial sector iron sand mining, which support Sentolo Industrial Estate.

Furthermore, in accordance with the mandate of the Government Regulation No. 24 of 2009, every new industry that stood after the enactment of these regulations shall be in an industrial estate.
