First of all, I’d like to congrats for the tons of good info and knowledge that I’ve been able to get from you as a regular visitor.
Thought would be good to invest some time in exchanging know-how and tips, and there’s something I have been working on for a while that I would like to have a broader advice on, and it’s foreign property, more specifically Indonesian property market, after reading the latest report by PWC is reported to become the 5th biggest economy by 2030 and the 4th by mid-century. the prices now are extremely favorable and ROI on sight, but wanted to hear from you guys, what you think and if anyone has had experiences on the matter.JaxonParticipant@jaxonaJoin Date: 2014Post Count: 284alexParticipant@investislandsJoin Date: 2017Post Count: 2
I know i was surprised as well that england russia and brazil could be outperformed. This is came to me so sudden, but after i read the PWC report of this year made much more sense, which actually goes even further with prediction until 2050 and Indonesia will have the 4th spot: China, India, US, Indonesia,
Check out the report fom PWC “The World in 2050”

One of my favourite sayings is: “If you torture the data long enough, it will confess to anything”
The report is talking about GDP PPP (adjusted to purchasing power)…
No offence and without causing alarm, but according to the logic in this thread, we should all sell all assets in Australia as it will slip down 4 ranks by 2030 and 9 ranks by 2050 😉
Link to report (skimmed, didn’t read):
That said, yeah, who knows, maybe investing in Indonesia will yield better ROI but I personally like to invest where I can control and get finance 😎
Hope this helps?

I spent a few years working in Indonesia for a mining company. When I left there 8 years ago A foreigner could only purchase if they had an Indonesian partner, who gets 51%. Corruption is rife and the government is far from honest and transparent.
I would tread very carefully. Find 2-3 people done it, get their experiences and learn from them. Risk removal is a biggie here.glaucusParticipant@glaucusJoin Date: 2008Post Count: 14
We spend plenty of time in Rote. Run a social enterprise project up there..
Steve actually provides some support to us coincidentally enough but I have never touted this on his own site. I see it as cheating. :) We are ever grateful for this support and teaching wisdom he provides.
Over dinner up in Utopia a couple of friends overheard a Singaporean investment broker has Rote marked as his greatest percentage of return out of the entire Asian portfolio.
Rote is of course Indonesia, the closest island to Australia.
You can lease land in lots of 20, 25 and 30 years legally with add on options taking it up to 100 years. That’s a decent amount of time to be rewarded with the 25% annual capital growth the area is currently basking in.

Great photo of Rote(?), would boom if/when they allow/start direct flights from Aust to Kupang West Timor

The concern in overseas locations should always be investment security, continuing visa and licencing approvals, 51% is scary, been there. Paradise beckons, some places are graveyards for unwary entrepreneurs. No doubt there are ways around the obstacles in every location. Good luck.
