Indonesia has a longstanding relationship with energy subsidies. For more than 40 years, these subsidies have been part of the lives of millions of Indonesians every day. For good and bad. Nevertheless, Indonesia has shown that fossil fuel subsidies can indeed be tackled. Last year, the Jokowi administration cut around IDR 200 trillion (USD 15 billion) from gasoline and diesel reforms, freeing up much needed money to invest in people and society. These are real achievements that hold many promises, not only for Indonesia, but for the international community as a whole.
