There’s a popular statistic among Indonesians - although its origin is unknown, hence its validity is questionable - that around 60 percent of Indonesia’s money flows through the main business strip of Jalan Sudirman to Jalan MH Thamrin in Jakarta. Whether it’s true or false, it’s certainly the most centralized business district in Indonesia, consisting of many of the world’s leading financial institutions like banks and insurance companies. This is partly the reason why Jakarta keeps on attracting outsiders - either Indonesians or expatriates - to look for jobs or for investment opportunities in Indonesia’s capital city. Indonesia’s not that bad a place to invest in either, as it’s one of the few countries in the world that has experienced a steady economic growth in recent years despite scares of global economic meltdown.
