Sri Mulyani is the all-Asia Finance Minister champion, according to Emerging Markets newspaper.

Editor Taimur Ahmad says that Sri was chosen based on progress achieved in areas like economic growth, investor trust, and ratings in Indonesia, and on the opinions of her held by foreign investors. He said:

We use bankers, analysts, and investors as the source of our ratings.

Outside of Asia the results for Best Finance Minister were: Youssef Boutros Ghali of Egypt, for the middle east; Polycarpe Abah Abah of Cameroon, for Africa; Aleksei Kudrin of Russia, for Europe; Alberto Carrasquilla of Colombia, for Latin America. The Best Central Bank Governor for Asia was Zhou of China.

Additionally, as another honour, on the same day, Dr Indrawati was awarded the title of "Minister of Finance of the year 2006" by Euromoney magazine in Switzerland. Says Euromoney:

Indonesia's young finance minister has made some key decisions since her appointment, winning many friends abroad. Some tough challenges lie ahead; to meet them, Mulyani will need to win more friends at home.

    You are quite right. Foreigners does not know how Indonesia’s economy works but just on paper is what they made their gauging.

    Like Burhannudin and Miranda Gultoem, Radius Prawiro all the same. As long as they get along to compromise the foreign economy, Indonesia’s economy is being undermined.

    There were many good and efficient people in Indonesia far more capable but are unwilling to be part of their forever discriminative and despecable look they placed on others.

    I don’t think Indonesia will progress.

    I think you will be better off on your own rather than get your freshman image tarnish by corrupt and equivoval opinion.

    Did she solve any of the Indonesian’s basic staple problem? Which problem had she solved?

    I am young and still learning. I have a dream that one day I can achive like you’ve done, even more.

    If so then you will end up no better than her but I just hope your wish come true.

    There are many, many countries who have done better than Indonesia or other parts of the world and yet they are keeping a low profile, Why?
    And why is she given the award? On which topic did she touch up that had such astronomical effect? What was the end result then!

    Oh Dear Mangkunegaran who said

    I have been working at Oil & Gas Company for a very long time, speciality at COST RECOVERY, I have a very valuable info

    Do you know if the term of ‘cost recovery’ for whatever reasons are slavery term? Meaning that you are incompetent to manage your own assets or your very own affairs and therefore you suck other people brains, invite them to invest to dig our soils (compromise your soverignity) and then you recover the investor (the colonials, the VOC) at cost as if you are thinking if you are a master but actually you are not ?

    Cost recovery is the term you must erase from your business practices, be independent, create new technology & constantly explore new geology and geophysicals technology to conquer your very own unique stratigraphy, hydrocarbon reservoirs. How many years did Indonesia produced oils? Why never learnt and be independent ? why never able to? Why you think you are great sharing your Colonial’s or infidels tactics to ibu Sri Mulyani?

    I will advise ibu to get the colonials out from our concession and bring in pertamina to get it done. The oil split shares brought by the colonials still more expensive than possible loss if Pertamina managing our wells.

    Hi Raden

    When he said

    Cost recovery

    I suppose he is referring to “LOSS CONTROL”

    Anyway how could a person recover cost! From what? And Where to?

    Loss Control is a management art, not every Dick, Tom or Harry could do that.

    As to Pertamina, they should remove all those corrupt guys. What I see right now is exactly a replica of what had happened when Ibnu Sutowo was there except that the scale right now is larger and the share’s Pertamina is getting is bigger therefore the loss was actually not uncovered yet. But sooner or later looking at the way of their costing, and being a net importer while producing. Aceh the recent find of the biggest deposit in Aceh will not help Indonesia in the next 10 to 20 years to come.

    As to Sri Mulyani she could only manage household and her kitchen. Say what anyone may like, the fact had already surfaced that Indonesia today is no better than before in term of economy. The end results is what that matters right now for Indonesians.
    I am suggesting that it is about time Indonesian Government get someone else like Laksamana Sukardi or Mochtar Riady into the picture.

    If Indonesia wants to be in the focus with the rest of the world, then it is about time. Unless one choose to ignore the current problem, I doubted there is much Sri Mulyani could do.

    The stomach of the poor is ever hungry.

    Hy Dragonwall,

    I think your opinion is independently made by your own ego. You’re very pesimistic and undermined what we have achieved… Well, I think we should support and honour the person that leads us to a better investment and business environment. We have to admit that what ever done by her, at least put Indonesia on the map.
    Be wise…

  12. avatar dragonwall says:
    January 9th, 2009 at 4:54 am

    I do not know who you are, but by way of speech you seemed to be an admirer sort of to sum up.

    1. Wasn’t Indonesia already on the map long before she was born? By the Dutch, Sukarno and Suharto? What was she doing before or makes her so special?

    What have you acheived when I can easily analyzed 2 years ago that the Rupiahs will reached 12,000 per dollar around 2012 but it came sort of surprising early as the economy of Indonesia had deteriorated to an extent of irrecoverable. Goeltom and her have all gauged the rupiahs to be able to rise to 7,500 per dollar. Any difference in there? They insist that the cutting of bank rate will help Indonesia but it still went under. So is that getting any better or worse?

    Am I pessimistic and is thought to be undermining what YOU HAVE ACHIEVED? WHO ARE YOU? WHAT ACHIEVEMENT YOU HAVE MADE FOR INDONESIA? Can you show me something prominent?

    We manage large tract of properties investment in Indonesia and made our own forecast before summing up what is going to happened to the economy.

    Well, I think we should support and honour the person that leads us to a better investment and business environment.

    There are things like what she said I can agree like letting Bakrie drop which the Indonesian Government disagree due to compassionate ground or personal feelings.

    What business environment and better investment had she led in Indonesia.

    Big O.

    I had earlier commented that cutting of bank rate will not help Indonesia but it seemed that those in office were feeling that cutting rate is a better choice.
    It had till this day brought the situation of Indonesia towards the downside. Nothing prominent had showed Indonesia is on the road to recovery with another handout of 900 million in new loans?

    What is 900 million to Indonesia? It is just an insult.

    During the Soeharto era they are referring to 20 to 50 billion in loans. This is what you should consider as doing something for the country with much regrets that many officials had see that as an easy way out to richness by corrupting the country’s money.

    And that is one big reason why many had seen Soeharto to be the biggest corruptor. Do you think so? You do but I don’t.

    He may have siphon a lot of money not to himself but towards the welfare. Which welfare?

    The ABRI .

    He had place Indonesia on the map of the world and made Indonesia proud. What have you done? What had she done?

    Last I heard of what she manage todo is to give those people at the BEA CUKAI a big slap in the face and a big kick inthe ass of the officils at the tax office. It is about time she start to kick th butts of those at the Immigratio and the Justice Office.

    At least there is someting for a start and if she keeps up to good work I suppose others attitudes towards her might change.

    But until today I still see that she is facing a huge obstacles and in no time, unless SBY is able to give her continuous support, she will be oust in no time.

    Anyway I hope she does not end up like some others fighting those lynching official corrupt scumbags. Especially people like Wiranto and Prabowo.

    I just searched for any kind of information about Mrs. Mulyani because I need to know about all aspect of her and I dont respect of what dragonwall said

    Am I pessimistic and is thought to be undermining what YOU HAVE ACHIEVED? WHO ARE YOU? WHAT ACHIEVEMENT YOU HAVE MADE FOR INDONESIA? Can you show me something prominent?

    Everybody free to say what they wanna say…but what I’ve seen in dragonwall’s quote is all about superficiality and pettiness…it’s a shame on you that as Indonesian people, what you can do is only criticize another…if you asked us who am I, I will said that I’m only ordinary people who will support anybody who work for this country. It’s no need a superhero or base on your ego, super lady who can solve all problem like God did. So, if I turn the question to you..WHO ARE YOU that only you can do is grumble? is that all you can do? compare someone to another?

    Why don’t you move somewhere outside Indonesia??

    Your own question:
    “Am I pessimistic and is thought to be undermining what YOU HAVE ACHIEVED? WHO ARE YOU? WHAT ACHIEVEMENT YOU HAVE MADE FOR INDONESIA? Can you show me something prominent?”

    Same goes to you, “What have you done, Dragonwall?”

    I don’t usually contribute anything in the forum but …Dragonwall, you sound really arrogant AS IF you were to switch place with her, you would have known better. I guess we will never know maybe because you will never be placed on the spot.

    Sri Mulyani may not be able to recover the economy fully but at least she does something for her country with honesty and integrity despite all the “pressure”, she serves her country. Dragonwall, why don’t you ask yourself, what have you done for your country apart from paying tax (if you pay any). If all you could ever do is putting someone who is serving her country down in a forum, maybe you should learn to have a little humility.

    Ms Mulyani if you are done helping Stanley with his Business Law homework, could you take a look at this rash on my left ankle. It’s been going on for a few weeks, I tried a lot of homemade remedies, but it has only been getting worse. The reason I asked you about this medical problem is because I need to cure this economically. I understand it is weird addressing you in a comment section of an article writen a few years ago, not written by you but only about you. Please forgive me, my grasp of logic has been lacking due to stress stemming from my bout with the rash.
    Lastly, will you accept me as your friend in facebook? I need help in farmville.

    I am bitterly disappointed that when I was finally accepted as an employee in Ministry of Finance, it wasn’t her who gave me orientation speech. I am a big fan of her achievements as a Finance Minister.
    Just take a look at the way she talks… It shows inteligence & bravery. And she KNOWS what she’s talking about. Unlike someone here, who could only complained and blabbering.
    I really hope that after she’s done with her duty on World Bank, she would come back to Indonesia and become our Finance Minister again.

    I am not an economist, not a fan of Sri M, not even studying economics, but for Dragonwall,you are foreigner who does business in Indonesia, right? Property, correct?
    tell me, are you one of them who make malls, apartments or luxury residential/offices?

    if so, forgive my words
    YOU GET OUT OF MY COUNTRY RIGHT NOW! we do not need Indonesian people to buy their own land! No need to forecast the economic situation or whatsoever in my country, just go away and find another place to do your business. My government is sucks! no doubt about that! but people like you are the worse! You sound harsh on corruptions but you do enjoy being part of it! hypocrite! Suharto the one who borrowed the money and we, the “now” generation, who have to pay that and you did agree to that! see where suharto failed? he failed to be an indonesian because he thought like you!
    we do not need apartments/malls, we need a large well-managed plantations and rice fields.
    we do not need electricity, we need education.
    we do not need your money, we need you to go and never come back.

    if you are not that property businessperson, then i am sorry, I am too furious to think straight
