"The book underlines an important message not to generalise policy prescriptions for Indonesia's provinces. Having a thorough knowledge of the potentials and challenges that the provinces face would provide deeper understanding of what is needed to be done. The ACI's what-if competitiveness simulation provides insights on how each province can improve their competitiveness in different ways."

Prof. Kuntoro Mangkusubroto
Head of President's Delivery Unit for Development Monitoring and Oversight (UKP4) 2009–2014

"This competitiveness research for Indonesia's provinces adds strategic value to improve the quality of our democracy. It is to link the economic benefits and competitiveness to political accountability, which is critical to both any elected officials and more importantly, to constituents and voters over what have been achieved during certain period of time. The notion of competitiveness becomes even more relevant, not only to drive economic growth per se but also to achieve sustainable economic development."

Chairman of Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) 2013–2014
