There is much to celebrate in Indonesia today. Over
the past decade and a half, Indonesia has risen
from the economic turmoil and political discord
of the late 1990s to become a politically stable,
thriving democracy. Strong economic growth has seen the
nation emerge as a middle-income country with the largest
economy in Southeast Asia. By 2050, Indonesia is projected
to have the 6th largest economy in the world. Along with
significant economic and social progress, Indonesia’s
population is changing rapidly—characterized by declining
fertility, increasing life expectancies and accelerated
migration to urban areas.
