Indonesia is a huge market, with a 240 million population, making it the third largest market in Asia outside of China and India in terms of size and potential. Indonesia’s economy has grown into the largest in Southeast Asia and the country is a member of the G20 major economies in the world (G20). Indonesia’s top export destinations and investors are the United States, China, Japan and Singapore, but many other countries are increasingly taking advantage of this competitive market.
