About the publication

Indonesia's economy has been ravaged by the Asian economic crisis. Its leader for 32 years, President Soeharto, was forced from office in May 1998 amidst rioting and student demonstrations. What are Indonesia's prospects over the next ten years?
           This book examines the political and economic trends which are shaping Indonesia's future.
           The contributors are leading politicians, business people -- academics and international journalists with a deep knowledge of Indonesia. They include Dr Dewi Fortuna Anwar, Assistant to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and adviser to Soeharto's successor, President Habibie. Another contributor is Dr Amien Rais, a potential candidate for the presidency in the 1999 General Elections. Sofjan Wanandi, a leading Indonesian businessman, reports on the current business environment. Professor Jamie Mackie of the Australian National University discusses the Chinese problem.
