Jakarta: Independence Monument (Monas)
 With a population of approximately 270 million, Indonesia has achieved steady economic growth in recent years. As a foundation for sustaining further growth, it realizes the need to improve its legal and judicial systems.
 Upon receipt of a request for assistance from the Indonesian government, ICD, in cooperation with JICA and the International Civil and Commercial Law Centre Foundation (ICCLC), implemented a two-year Project on Improvement of the Mediation System beginning in March 2007. This project provided assistance in: 1) Revising regulations of the Supreme Court on mediation; 2) Improving the devices necessary for training mediators; and 3) Disseminating the court-annexed mediation system.
 Upon completion of the project, the Supreme Court of Indonesia expressed its intent to continue learning from the Japanese legal system and experiences. In response to this request (since Apr. 2010), the MOJ has developed unique cooperative activities with Indonesia to improve its judicial training system, by inviting Indonesian judges to joint studies of personnel capacity-building systems held in Japan, etc.
 In addition, from December 2015 to September 2021, a JICA project was implemented with the aim to strengthen the system to protect intellectual property rights and to establish a mechanism to improve legal consistency in business-related laws (with a focus on intellectual property laws) in Indonesia, for the Supreme Court of Indonesia, the Directorate General of Legislation, and the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. The MOJ has cooperated with the project by dispatching prosecutors, including former judges, to Indonesia as long-term experts, and by planning and implementing trainings in Japan for Indonesian legal and judicial personnel invited to Japan.
 As a result, a number of achievements were made, including the preparation and completion of a collection of judgments and reference materials for drafting and vetting legislation for legal practitioners.
 In October 2021, a new JICA project was launched targeting the Supreme Court of Indonesia and the Directorate General of Legislation of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights to improve the capacity of drafters to ensure legislative consistency, and to strengthen the capacity of judges for efficient and fair case processing and disposition in business-related cases including intellectual property disputes. ICD continues to cooperate in this project as well.
