WHAT'S COMING


The World Economic Forum on East Asia

Robust economic growth and an improved investment climate have underpinned the economic recovery of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), buoyed by an emerging market of nearly 600 million consumers. The planned economic integration by 2015 will see ASEAN emerge as the world’s 10th largest economy.  As Chair of ASEAN in 2011, its largest economy and a member of the G20, Indonesia is the ideal location to host the 20th anniversary of the World Economic Forum on East Asia, convening leaders from business, government and civil society to address the region’s key challenges. World Economic Forum to be held in Jakarta is one positive sign for Indonesia to increase investment. Other countries have given the recognition that Indonesia experienced significant economic growth. World economic Forum is one event to improve infrastructure and human resources.
