Today’s Economic Development Cooperation

SECO is part of the Swiss Federal Department of Economic Affairs (FDEA) and is responsible for the planning and implementation of economic and trade policy measures with developing countries. SECO’s main aims are to integrate partner countries into the global economy and to promote the sustainable economic growth of these countries, thus contributing to poverty reduction. SECO focuses its support on themes where it can add most value. SECO’s support is intended to trigger and complement efforts made by our partner governments, regional entities, and the private sector.

SECO’s program in Indonesia is mapped out in the Indonesia Country Strategy 2017-2020. This document acts as the guiding framework for Swiss support for the designated period 2017-2020.

Switzerland has signed the Jakarta Commitment in 2009, thus committing to implement the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness principles together with other Development Partners of Indonesia.
