To have managed one of the most complex single-day elections in modern times - involving more than 190 million voters, 800,000 polling stations, and four levels of government - is impressive to put it mildly, and should give investors' confidence in the future of this high-potential country.
More broadly, Indonesia's economic achievements over the past five years present an excellent platform for further economic development.
Yet unlocking the country's true economic potential will require continued investment in domestic connectivity, industrial productivity and improved ease of doing business. Infrastructure spend will be at the core of this, and will require ongoing government, private and international investment. The Indonesian government has already made strides to increase the openness and transparency of its infrastructure development. The five-year runway ahead now gives the administration the time and space to invest and deliver on its promises.
