While current support to Aceh in the aftermath of recent natural disasters focuses mainly on rehabilitation and reconstruction, there is also a need to consider the impact of these activities on the local economy, and to provide support for longer term economic development of the region.

Guidelines will be prepared which lay out a general strategy and framework for economic development.
An institutional framework will be established to promote economic growth in the region, based on public-private partnerships associated with clusters of economic activities.
The partnerships will generate initiatives for economic development, mobilise resources for them, and supervise their implementation.
