More detail about Indonesia
A south Asian country, Indonesia is a member of OPEC, with a significant amount of oil reserves. The Indonesian Government owns all the rights on petroleum and also on mining. Indonesia takes pride in being the country with the largest economy in south Asia, and being a member of the G-20 economies.
In spite of having a huge amount of natural resources, Indonesia faces a problem of unequal distribution of wealth among its citizens. Therefore a huge economic disparity is observed in the Indonesian society. Indonesian economy sector is a mixed type and it has both the private and the public sector contributing to it.
The sector of travel and tourism also has been taken care of by the government of Indonesia. After Brazil, it is Indonesia which has the highest range of bio diversity. What sets Indonesian flora and fauna apart from rest of the world is a combination of both Asian and Australian species. You can witness over 600 species of animals in the land of Indonesia. Indonesia still has a forest coverage of 60% of the total land.
Indonesia is a harmonious home to about 300 different ethnic groups, with each of the groups having a different culture and background of their own. And this is another reason for Indonesia to let you savor a variety of cuisines ranging from Indian to Chinese, to Middle Eastern, to European.
It would be a folly to end the talk about Indonesia without a mention to their film industry. The film industry reached the acme in 1980s, but saw a declining shift in the 1990s. However, Indonesia has consistently produced a large number of films in between the years of 2000-2005. Talking about the present, the Indonesian Government has imposed heavy tax on foreign films, which is why the Indonesians are satisfying their appetite for films only through Indonesian films.
