Provinces of Indonesia

The number of provinces of Indonesia has tended to increase as new provinces have been split from existing territories. As of January 2003 there appear to be 28 provinces (propinsi), 2 special regions* (daerah istimewa), and 1 special capital city district** (daerah khusus ibukota). In September 2004, that number was increased to 33 with the last addition of West Sulawesi.

  • New Guinea
    • West Irian Jaya (Irian Jaya Barat)
    • Papua (formerly Irian Jaya). A proposal to split this into Papua Tengah (Central Papua) and Papua Timur (East Papua) has not been fully implemented.
