Empirical evidence on how different types of public infrastructure investment influence economic and social development remains limited. Using a case study of Indonesia, this paper aims to analyse the impacts of four different types of infrastructure spending: (1) district/city government infrastructure spending, (2) provincial government infrastructure spending, (3) national government infrastructure budget distribution to district and city governments and (4) national government infrastructure budget distribution to provincial governments. The main finding is that provincial governments seem to be better at utilising infrastructure spending to induce regional economic and social development. The implications of the research will be discussed.
