Background information

The transcontinental country Indonesia has an extensive variety of natural resources and currently represents the largest economy in Southeast Asia, even despite a recent slowdown in economic growth as a result of the falling international commodity prices. The industry sector accounts for almost half of the mixed economy’s GDP, followed by agriculture and industry. Current political challenges are widespread corruption and an insufficient infrastructure.

The agricultural sector employs nearly two-fifths of the total workforce, representing the country’s largest employer, and contributes to about one-sixth of the total GDP. One-third of the available land is cultivated growing a large variety of products, such as rubber and similar products, palm oil, cocoa and coffee. In order to fulfill the internal demand slightly more than one-tenth of the total cereals consumption is imported.

According to the HDI (2014), with an overall score of 0.684, Indonesia ranked among the countries displaying a medium level of human development. However, more than one-third of children under five are stunted, and as assessed by the GHI (2015), malnourishment is an issue seriously affecting the country. Moreover, one-sixth of the population lives below the extreme poverty line.
