Indonesia: Asia’s Next Heavyweight?

Event Details

Indonesia’s decade-long rise to middle-income status, an attractive emerging market with enormous potential for investment growth is by now well known.

Stable, vibrant democratic politics, legitimate elections, and domestic peace and safety have been the underpinnings of Indonesia’s rise in recent yeas. A large middle class, dynamic free press, and very high consumer confidence now characterize Indonesia.
