challenges from the sanctions, His Excellency Mr. Poerwana commented that in Indonesia they believe no country should control the

internal affairs of another country. He also sighted that t Indonesia has adopted a policy similar to Zimbabwe Indigenization

model compelling foreign investments to cede 51% of their shares but emphasize that these happens in phases not all of it. The
