Asia House Board Member and Global Head of Public Affairs and Sustainability at Standard Chartered Bank, Vasuki Shastry, launched his book, Resurgent Indonesia – From Crisis to Confidence, at Asia House, Thursday 12 April 2018.
In 1998, wracked by financial turmoil and political upheaval, Indonesia seemed like a country on the brink of collapse.
Resurgent Indonesia – From Crisis to Confidence is the gripping inside account of Indonesia’s steep decline after the Asian financial crisis and its improbable recovery and rise in the ensuing two decades.
Resurgent Indonesia charts the country’s difficult journey from a failing state to a confident young democracy and a fast-growing economy. Today, Indonesia is a powerful global symbol of how
globalisation and democracy are perfectly compatible.
Indonesian Ambassador to the UK, His Excellency Dr Rizal Sukma, was present.
