Indonesians complain when the government builds infrastructure. Chinese dont dare to complain and as a result, Chinas infrastructure is light years ahead of Indonesias.

But, in this current troubled world, its relly much better to be religion-free, in which people can focus on the real issues, instead of accusing others for blasphemy. Religious fanaticism isnt a problem shared by all believers. But it is indeed a serious problem.

To put it simply, the path to success is different from person to person and from country to country.Maybe China has finally found its formula for success, well good for them. But as an Indonesian i can tell you with certainty we havent found that reliable formula to success yet.

What can Indonesia learn from China?

You can clearly see the main differences between the two. One is a centralized homogeneous continental country that will always be like that and for China thats their magic formula.Chinas magic formula has always been there staring at them in the face. While Indonesia hasnt found its magic formula yet.

Its better Indonesia be realistic to do what they have n focus on self sufficient economy.

In next 2 decades, I can bet Indonesian Industry n economy wont be better than now. Due to politics n system of Government will slow down the growth. We can learn from India. Unless only the hard lines governance can change it.

Indonesian political parties fought each other to gain more power and the privilege to plunder the country. Chinese political party fought internally and the winners afterwards can concentrate on building the country. Indonesian politicians fight every five years. New winner will reverse policies of the loser. Development marching on place.

It could be economically (although the PwC forecast suggested that Indonesias GDP will still be one sixth of Chinas GDP by 2050), but it might be in a different way from Chinese way of development. The undemocratic nature of Chinas politics allows the government to focus on long term planning for development with little to no oppostion, this also holds true in democratic Singapore where Peoples Action Party always won every election even before Singapores independence in 1965. Japan or South Korea might be a closer example to Indonesian system. Although their cabinet changes almost every year together with rapid rise and fall of prime ministers, but they hold onto their high moral values, therefore it is not strange when a minister or important officials stepped down due to small mistakes. This makes the government consistent to their master plan. Indonesia has National Development Planning System as long term guidelines for national economic development, but the pace would depend on how the running government works on it, hence the Indonesias economic development is affected heavily by political ploys inside the government, whether it is honest, corrupted, just, unjust, or else. If Indonesias development seems good under the current regime, there is no guarantee that it will sustain the pace after the current government stepped down, either national, provicial, or lower level government. Therefore I think that a continuous improvement in human resource quality is the first step solution if Indonesia wants to be the next China, economically. This is because the highly qualified human resource will allow government positions to be filled with skilled and more responsible statemen/women and more highly paid jobs and industries opened, therefore a better economic level is achieved.

For any developing country that wants to catch up with China and many countries that are now developed such as Singapore and South Korea, they have to learn to concentrate their energy on the real deal. Wealthy and well-established countries can afford playing dangerous social issues, developing countries cannot. At the end of the day, there are only so few opportunites to catach.

OK lets go back to the question shall we. This answer is based on my knowledge of this country. Indonesia is blessed with everything it needs to be successful. From location, land, large population, culture, history, creativity and especially natural resource. Indonesia has everything. The main difference between China and Indonesia is the way its socio-political system works. In China its political system from the very beginning has always been centralized. Thats just how the Chinese system works. From the imperial time to modern time, China has always been centralized.

Until someone or something figure out that magic formula, Indonesia will continue to be a few steps behind China. Personally im not embarrassed by it. Why? because we as a nation are on the path of creating something brand new, something that the world has never seen before 🙂

Indonesia is different. Its political system has always been in flux.In a nut shell China has always been centralized while Indonesia works best when it is decentralized. Why ?

What can Indonesia learn from China?

Indonesia is a nation rich in resources. They will become great if they prevent the rise of religion, reign in corruption, promote meritocracy not promotion by political or religious connections.

Indonesians want to go heaven. Chinese want to create heaven on earth.

Will Indonesia attack China in the near future?

This is quite difficult, because Indonesia does not have so much land and population, and of course culture is also very important. I always think that the United States is strong because many Jews in the Second World War fled to the United States, and the Jews are very good at scientific research and business, thus stimulating the entire United States and the economy. If you investigate for yourself, the founders of the top companies in the United States are mostly Jewish. Therefore, the culture of a country is very important. Of course, if compared to countries with similar masses, such as Japan. Indonesia is closer in terms of population, resources and land area. Perhaps Japan should be your goal.
