    Why invest in ASEAN?

    • Indonesia

      Indonesia is a growing power house in Southeast Asia. A member of the G20, Indonesia’s GDP stands at US$1 trillion, the largest in the region. It is touted by analysts to be among the new economies to watch out. Indonesia is part of the newly-coined emerging markets acronym MIST (Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea, and Turkey) owing to its potentials, huge GDP, and large share in the Goldman’s N-11 equity fund.

      Its domestic market is among those that fuels Indonesia’s economic success. Now at 238 million, the country’s burgeoning population is the fourth largest in the world. Almost half of the population are in urban areas and have increased capacity to spend. Indonesians aged below 20 years constitute more than 50% of the population. They drive not only spending but also reforms and positive changes. Workforce is expected to reach 2.7 million.

      Economic stability is attributed to the government’s prudent fiscal stewardship which enabled Indonesia to lower its debt GDP ratio to 25% by end of 2011 from 95% ten years ago.

      Key sectoral opportunities are in infrastructure including projects in toll road, marine transportation, railway, power, and water supply; food and agriculture; and energy sector.

      Invest in remarkable Indonesia.
