Jackson Denny's insight:

East Java, ranked second out of Indonesia's provinces (Jakarta) in terms of competitiveness and stability, has been attracting large amounts of foreign investment. Contributing to its attractiveness is its commitment to easing the process of business licenses and land acquisition. Throughout this increasing inflow, they look to patch up gaps in infrastructure, expanding on city links and international airports.

Jackson Denny's insight:

This topic is quite vital for the booming economy of Indonesia: Trade. Their vast amount of exports generated a huge percentage of their income, which allowed them to gain more access to other resources, therefore supporting the economic movement. Unfortunately, this was in the 1980's. Now, with the oil-market collapse in the 80's and a near debt crisis in the 90's, they are in large debt. If they can increase exports, it will allow their currency to appreciate in value and again permit them to  grow more through a higher amount of raw materials.

Indonesia's splintered election blunts chances for a needed broad economic reform | Indonesia | Scoop.it
The splintered parliament and the coalition government likely to result from Indonesia's legislative elections this week dim chances for quick and sweeping reforms of Southeast Asia's largest economy.
Jackson Denny's insight:

With growth below 6% and a rapidly depreciating currency, economic reform is necessary. The problem is that the election has not provided a winner, yet, and so actions cannot be taken until the official election in July. For now, they will have to trudge with hoped of a better outlook.

Indonesia Rates Seen Rupiah’s Savior From Slump: Market Reversal

Support for Indonesia’s rupiah, Asia’s worst-performing currency this month, is building as the nation’s assets attract funds from abroad and trading patterns suggest its decline is overdone.
Jackson Denny's insight:

In April, the Rupiah has been the worst performing currency in Asia. Fortunately, the country's high interest rates will likely offset this declination. Another important note is that Indonesia has banned the exports of unprocessed mineral ores back in January as an attempt to encourage more domestic investment, which could very well be a factor of poor exchange rates.
