This is nice info. It should expand also in the Philippines. Maybe, in the suburbs too.

There is absolutely no doubt that there is a much greater amount of rich people living in Jakarta versus in Manila.

Plus, as we've discussed earlier, Jakarta only amounts to 15% of Indonesian GDP while Manila up to 36% of Philippine GDP.
Yes. That's true. In the Philippines case, Metro Manila is the most progressive region, including the so-called Mega Manila which caters most of the Economic zones of the Philippines.

Another thing which Manila can be proud of is its Entertainment Industry. Given that it is predominantly a Christian Country, it can cater the likes of Solaire and Resorts World.

The good thing about Philippine set-up is that, even though economic activity is concentrated in Metro Manila, there are other Philippine cities duplicating what Manila has achieved. SO that by 2050, Philippines will be the 5th largest economy in Asia and the largest in SEA.

Bars, museum, observatories or fast food restaurant chains? All of those we have it, most of the listing you wrote about the restaurant chains are available in Jakarta. Did you have laudree macaroon shop? Or Paul restaurant in manila? I doubt so. And did you know JCO are indonesians?
huh better? I should have tried it first before coming up with such conclusions...

Btw yes we do have Paul, the first in SEA at SM Aura with a second one opening somewhere in BGC, just a stone-throw away with each other.

We at least experienced to become second to JAPAN way back then, and now we're doing good in Asean region once more.. while yours never experienced to reach what we had before.. Its just now that your economy is gaining fast now a days. Don't hallucinate on some things..don't be CHINA! To dream big is good, but to bent the history was crappy.

We are best in BPO so far i could proudly say.

Your PT Pal military industry is just shaping up, if they compete with other MILITARY builders in Asia like Hanjin who happened to be in Subic in Ph, Daewoo in Korea, Astral of Australia who happened to be located in Talamban Cebu in Phils.. they're having a hard time with those big players.

Luckily your PT Pal Military won the bidding in our NAVYs requirements. you should be thankful to that, it will generate incomes to those labor force of your country.

Sorry Indoberry for this, but this sounds... i don't know
What? Pindad produce weapon that ph buys lol.

Now the entire Singapore isle generates more gdp than an entire nation of 100 million.
