These business expansion strategies fit the tagline of “Never Ending Passion” to ride on the huge growth of middle income market potential in Indonesia. With 250 million population, Indonesia is the 4th most dense country in the world and blessed with young productive demographic; 60% is aged 20 to 65 with 27% is below age 25. 74 million middle income class now would become 140 million by 2020.
