Formatted abstract This thesis was designed to investigate the state of agriculture and rural development as well as the government's role in agriculture during the period of adjustment planning from 1969 to 1998 in Indonesia. It begins by examining a number of relevant theories of economic development and their relevance to the Indonesian economic condition.

Based on these theories, the writer then examines the phases of Indonesian development by collecting past empirical data to find out the aims and objectives of the five-year economic development programs (REPELITA) since 1969 to the late 1990s. In addition, the writer identifies crucial information with regard to industrial transformation of the Indonesian economy. The results show that the government has neglected the agricultural sector during the transition process and failed to transform the Indonesian economy from an agriculture-based to an industrial-based economy.

This study is also looks further at the reasons behind the failure by analyzing a number of major state policies adopted by the government during the transition period. Finally, to conclude this study, the writer examines three important effects of the failure. The effects include the increasing pattern of poverty levels, especially in rural areas, high inequality in income distribution across the country and a high degree of rural-urban disparity.
