Why Indonesia? Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s largest economy with a GDP of $888 billion. It is a thriving democracy with significant regional autonomy. Located on one of the world’s major trade routes, Indonesia’s economy comprises nearly half of ASEAN output. Consumer‐related market opportunities in retail, health, education, telecom and the financial sector have boomed over the past few years. More than 60 million low income Indonesian workers are expected to join the middle class in the coming decade, significantly increasing consumer demand.
