Abstract
The development of Batam as a special economic zone (SEZ) has been initiated for more than four decades ago. Despite its success, there has been limited study to analyze the impact of the SEZ to its peripheral. The Spatial Plan of Batam Bintan Karimun (BBK) is the only policy that regulating how the SEZ could benefit the peripheral area, the Bintan and Karimun regencies, and Tanjung Pinang city. The spatial plan (Rencana Tata Ruang) of BBK serves as the operationalization of the National Spatial Plan (Rencana Tata Ruang Wilayah Nasional/RTRWN) and as a coordination tool for development in the BBK area. In this regulation, the City Government can utilize the existing land in the BP Batam working area, although it must obey the existing scheme and get the permission of BP Batam as the manager of the Batam Area KPBPB. This study examines the current economic role of Batam in the BBK area. By using descriptive statistics and analysis of regulatory content, this study emphasizes the continuing importance of the role of Batam economically. This can be seen by utilizing international IT connections and encouraging investment attractions through diversification of new industrial subsectors, for example shipping, creative industries, ICT and FinTech.
