In 2016, World Bank reported that Indonesia was the 8th largest country by GDP (PPP). Further, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in its 2017 report titled "The long view: how will the global economic order change by 2050?" has projected that world economic order in 2050 will change and will make Indonesia the 4th largest country by GDP (PPP). Notwithstanding to the bright projection for Indonesia issued by PwC; however, Indonesia is currently facing a turbulence time caused by problems ranging from multicultural to economic issues. For instance, World Bank in 2017 reported that there are 28.4 million people still living under the national poverty line and 7.02 million people are unemployed (BPS, 2016 as cited in Indonesia-investment.com, 2016).
