Axelsson, Tobias LU (2010) European Association for South-East Asian Studies (EUROSEAS), 2010
Abstract
Indonesia came a long way under Suharto but it became very clear in 1997 that the development process was far from finished.

A core issue in development policy in Indonesia was the transformation of the agricultural sector and great efforts were put into this in the early Suharto era. With achievement of self sufficiency on rice in the early 1980s the process stalled and by 1997, the need for agricultural change is as great as ever With this as a starting point, the paper will examine the agricultural transformation process in Java during Suharto. The paper will focus on three core aspects of the transformation process in Java, namely productivity, income and... (More)
Indonesia came a long way under Suharto but it became very clear in 1997 that the development process was far from finished.

A core issue in development policy in Indonesia was the transformation of the agricultural sector and great efforts were put into this in the early Suharto era. With achievement of self sufficiency on rice in the early 1980s the process stalled and by 1997, the need for agricultural change is as great as ever With this as a starting point, the paper will examine the agricultural transformation process in Java during Suharto. The paper will focus on three core aspects of the transformation process in Java, namely productivity, income and equity in agriculture. With a focus on these three aspects the paper will highlight some of the problems that arose in agriculture in the latter half of the Suharto's reign and examine if these still persists. The paper combines statistical data with policy documents concerning the agricultural sector of Java covering the period 1968 -2008. (Less)
