In the aftermath of the global crisis, Indonesia has emerged as a strong candidate for foreign investment. With a sizable domestic market, diversified natural resources, and a competitive labor force, Indonesia is poised for astounding growth in the coming years that has led to many an economist to call for the inclusion of Indonesia into “BRIIC”. The country‘s resilience to the global crisis demonstrates the strong fundamentals of its domestic economy. We believe that Indonesia will be where the growth is at while other economies are only recovering from the global economic meltdown of 2008.

Over the last decade, the Pakistani economy has proved unexpectedly resilient in the face of multiple adverse events concentrated into a four year (1998-2002) period. Despite these adverse events, the Pakistan economy continued to grow. This resilience has led to a change in the perceptions of the economy, with leading international institutions such as the IMF praising Pakistan's performance in the face of adversity. By October 2007, Pakistan was able to raise its foreign reserves back to $16.4 billion after they had fallen during difficult times.
