expatriate information for Indonesia

Following the tragic events of 26 December 2004, when a massive tsunami swept the region, world attention has become focused on Aceh province in Indonesia, where an estimated 200,000 plus people were reported killed or missing. With ongoing seismic activity occurring on the Sumatra coastline, Indonesia and Aceh now face the huge task of recovery and restructuring in a province that has also been impacted by a separatist struggle for almost 30 years.

As a result of the tsunami and earthquakes, unprecedented damage has occurred to all aspects of Aceh society, including the:

  • Social Sector (housing; education; health; religion)
  • Infrastructure (transportation; communications; energy; water and sanitation)
  • Production Sector (agribusiness; fisheries; industry and trade)
  • Cross Sectors (environment; local government and administration; banking and finance)
