I have mentioned last nite in my twitter, that I would write about this. A friend of mine, an economic analyst from Canada, said to me several months ago that Indonesia will soon put at least 12 companies in Forbes' World's 1000 largest. In 2009, PT Telkom Indonesia ranked #657, Bank Central Asia at #930, Bank Rakyat Indonesia at #988, Bank Mandiri at #1004.
Things will change, as Indonesian companies book more and more profit and they've expanded their investment and operation by double, which will lead them to a bigger market capitalization.
I am listing out Indonesia's 1 largest companies per sector, for your kind pleasure:
Automotive & Transport: Astra Banking: Bank Mandiri Food: PT. Indofood Sukses Makmur Wood & Paper Products: Asia Pulp Chemicals: Tri Polyta Indonesia Tbk Construction: PT Semen Gresik Cosmetics: Martha Tilaar Group Energy: Pertamina Metals & Mining: Aneka Tambang PT Cleaning Services: Calmic Indonesia Telecommunications Services: PT. Telkom Indonesia Transportation Services: Garuda Indonesia Tobacco: PT. Gudang Garam
You might have more accurate info. Please share :) Enjoy!
