KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency) was established as a governmental agency dedicated to providing grant aid programs of the Korean government. KOICA endeavours to provide aid in accordance with the economic, social, and cultural situations of every developing country in order to achieve sustainable development.
In support of the joint response to global issues (poverty, gender equality, climate, change, human rights, etc.), KOICA has carried out multilateral development cooperation projects primarily in countries lacking in or excluded from aid and areas with ongoing conflicts, utilizing the expertise and networks of the international organizations to supplement existing two-party bilateral aid. The aim is to establish strategic partnerships with international organizations to create synergy.
KOICA Indonesia office represents a living history of KOICA. In 1991, the Korean government established the KOICA Headquarter and its first regional office in Jakarta, Indonesia. We have a great sense of pride that the KOICA Indonesia office added a page to the history of KOICA.
Over the last three decades, the total volume of KOICA’s aid to Indonesia reached 226 million USD while we have provided a variety of development programs, grant aid projects and technical cooperation, which includes training programs and volunteer activities.
As we continue to adapt to the fast-changing development environment of Indonesia, KOICA now refocuses our efforts in the field of economic development, transport infrastructure, public administration, water resource management, climate change response and sustainable environmental protection in accordance with the National Development Plan of Indonesia.
