As an archipelago spanning 3 time zones and boasting the world’s fourth largest population the business opportunities in Indonesia are almost limitless.

Commodities & Resources

Indonesia is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, particularly coal and a wide variety of minerals. It is also the largest producer of palm oil in the world.

Finance & Investment

A very young demographic and growing middle class is driving economic expansion. Domestic borrowing is expensive making international funding very attractive.


Indonesia is chronically short of electrical power. Rail and marine transportation have not matched economic expansion and are badly in need of investment.


From the fast developing mega-city of Jakarta through to the numerous tourism and leisure destinations the property sector has plenty of room for expansion.
