Makassar is one of Indonesian cities where economic growth is outpacing Jakarta and the rest of the island of Java, the country¹s political, economic and cultural heart. The port city of Makassar, has long been a bustling entrepot thanks to the seafaring traditions of its Buginese inhabitants, who built historical trade networks throughout the 17,000-island archipelago that has become modern Indonesia.

In recent years, growth in Makassar has taken off, thanks to surging consumer demand and a commodities boom ­ the twin pillars of the wider Indonesian growth story ­ which has seen southeast Asia¹s biggest economy grow at an average rate of nearly 6 per cent in the last five years. Makassar is a strategically located hub for eastern Indonesia, and there will big opportunities for investors looking to reach consumers. There has been increased investments in Makassar with a similar focus on power generation, smelting facilities for Sulawesi¹s sizeable nickel reserves and infrastructure, with a feasibility study under way on the construction of what could be Indonesia¹s first monorail system. The growing middle-class demand for good quality housing and shopping - all of which are posting annual GDP growth of around 9 per cent.
