Indonesia 2020, hmm…its difficult for me to have clear imagination on how it would looks like. Advanced ? high tech living ? Anyhow, according to my perception, Indonesia will most likely transforming itself into an advance and fast growing nation as we see many moderate improvements in the country during this recent years. I can say its not impossible for us to position our self as high as South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan in the next 11 years. Or even, we could be higher than it ? Who knows !
However, there is one main issue I like to bring up in here. I would say if Indonesian capital might be moved from Jakarta already on 2020. As we seen Jakarta condition now which I personally don’t know how to explain it by words. We need new capital city which has more stable infrastructure and stable population. It will be much better for the government operational activities especially in a place with a good infrastructure. My feeling is Surabaya could be a good candidate for this since it is considered as medium metropolitan and it has much stable infrastructure and much less populated than Jakarta.

It will be one decade to go…The Republic of Indonesia will be free of corruption and terrorism threat. Every single Indonesian is living in the comfortable house and without worries of their safety in the country. And when you visit other country, you will find more and more products stated” MADE IN INDONESIA’’ win over china market. With stable leadership(somebody will take over SBY, hopefully he/she is somebody who is visionary person to enable Indonesia become an art, technology, business, financial, tourism and education Empire in region and international). In Bureaucracy perspective, Indonesian won’t wait weekly to get their document approval, at that time every things are done electronically and can be very convenience even in country side. Hopefully “KEADILAN SOSIAL BAGI SELURUH RAKYAT INDONESIA” Can be achieved at 2020. Every single land will get the benefit of the huge development.
In 2020 hopefully Indonesia can become the 2022 FIFA World Cup host country that attract soccer maniacs all over the world to visit our nation and see how fast Indonesia are growing and how good is Indonesian. Indonesian will much more contribution in worldwide achievement.

I heard about the bombing in Jakarta while my friends were already onboard of Emirates to Jakarta. I never have any doubt in Indonesia to fight terrorism, so I have decided to go to Bali and Lombok this October 2009 with my wife and my little baby. Several days ago there was a good and (always) positive outlook on Indonesia’s economy in Bloomberg Channel, in which I found that Indonesia will be the major power in Asia by 2030. When someone talks about Asia, there’s only two things crossing my mind, one is the Chinese, second is noodle. And I am so much convinced that in 2020, Indonesia will instantly cross my mind when someone talks about Asia. It is something the world has to deal with.

i’m not sure with the idea to move our capital city from Jakarta to Surabaya or others. The same problem will be happened in the next capital city. In my opinion, it’s better for us to think how to manage Jakarta as well as possible; like controlling the population here by transmigration program, or any.
I optimist that Indonesia will revive and be much better than now.

Hmmm….according to my opinion. Moving the capital to other city would still be a good solution. As Jakarta mess is quite uncontrolled now and it seems to be very costly and takes a very long time for the government to solve it. My opinion could be wrong but still I feel if its better to move the capital as we will start again from an early phase so the government would be more well prepared to anticipate any potential mess such as : increase population, increase crime and so on as they learned from Jakarta already.
