Matching local priority industries.

 

There are 12 priority industries identified by provincial or state governments along the two corridors (West Borneo Economic Corridor and Greater Sulu-Sulawesi Economic Corridor) having a large potential for success as corridor-wide value chains, specifically from increased competitiveness, complementarities, cost efficiencies, employment generation, and increased access to inputs and markets. They included amongst the many other industries; crude oil and gas extraction and petrochemicals.
