(NAPSI)—Indonesia will choose its next president in a few months and the historic presidential race is heating up. The strategically important archipelago nation of 17,000 islands in the heart of Asia shuttered a dictatorial system in the late 1990s and continues to build its fledgling democracy. Home to the largest Muslim population in the world, Indonesia maintains its moderate Islamic views as it chooses to focus its attention on emerging as a potent economic player on the global stage—and this focus is paying off. Indonesia has the world’s fourth largest population and boasts an economy currently ranked 16th but is projected to move up past Germany and the United Kingdom and to seventh by 2030. With a respectable 6 percent growth in 2012, the country’s longer-term economic outlook remains strong. So with this type of potential, who leads this rising star matters to the world, and one candidate is emerging as the odds- on favorite: Prabowo Subianto.
