I don't want to ruin your optimism, but to surpass Indonesia's total GDP the Philippines need to grow 2 times higher than Indonesia's economic growth, which is currently in the range of 5-6% growth per year, because the population of Indonesia is two times bigger than the Philippines... so your country have to grow more than 10% annually... I know you were referring to HSBC report which is unfortunately was the one and only report that projected the Philippines to be the biggest economy in ASEAN, because all of other projections (such as PWC, City Bank, UN, OECD, IMF, WB and many more) are contradict that report, for example, at that report, Indonesia projected to become the 17th largest economy in the world in 2050 and increased by 4 levels if I'm not mistaken, but the fact is, today, in 2014 Indonesia has already the 15th biggest economy in the world on GDP nominal, and the 9th biggest economy in the world by GDP PPP, Philippines is not even in top 20...

although we must always be optimistic, but we also have to be able to measure the ability of our own, not easily believe everything blindly...

The reason why Jakarta holds merely 15% of the GDP is because many parts of the outer islands consistently do grow faster than the national average. Each part of Indonesia is developing its own unique industrial cluster. Medan, for instance, is the center for the palm oil industry. Balikpapan is home to the largest coal mines in Indonesia. Bali is successful as a tourist center and Makassar is successful as the industrial center for eastern Indonesia. Many other cities in Indonesia are developing rapidly, some even more rapid than Jakarta.

Here's a couple of pics from other Indonesian cities.

We all have these in Metro Manila. Much bigger, much better!

How sure are you? You know nothing about the Philippines really. That's why you just say what you want to say, even if self-serving. You only rely on what others would tell you! Hearsay it is. No first-hand knowledge.

I was able to back-up all my claims. And if you notice, I never threw negative things about Jakarta. Unlike you. You have thrown so much garbage about the Philippines. Look what kind of person are you.

Philippines!

Better in terms of Shopping!
Better in terms of BPO!
Better in terms of Entertainment!

These three claims I was able to back-up. Not just claim.
