Indonesia Introduction

         Indonesia is a country in Southeast Asia that consists of more than 13,600 islands. The islands lie along the equator and extend more than 5,000 kilometres.
        Many of the islands cover only a few square kilometres. But about half of New Guinea (an area called Irian Jaya), and three-quarters of Borneo (Kalimantan), also belong to Indonesia. New Guinea and Borneo are the second- and third-largest islands in the world, after Greenland.

A Short Background

The world's largest archipelago, Indonesia achieved independence from the Netherlands in 1949. Current issues include: implementing IMF-mandated reforms of the banking sector, effecting a transition to a popularly elected government after four decades of authoritarianism, addressing charges of cronyism and corruption, holding the military accountable for human rights violations, and resolving growing separatist pressures in Aceh and Irian Jaya.

On 30 August 1999 a provincial referendum for independence was overwhelmingly approved by the people of Timor Timur. Concurrence followed by Indonesia's national legislature, and the name East Timor was provisionally adopted. The independent status of East Timor - now under UN administration - has yet to be formally established.
