Table: The Challenges

-- Jakarta's end to subsidies has pushed up phone rates 15%, the minimum wage 39%, and the price of gas 22%, putting pressure on manufacturers

-- The economy is not expected to grow fast enough to make a dent in unemployment, which some economists put at 28%

-- The perception that Indonesia is a terror factory and that Jakarta is losing control of provincial authorities is worsening the investment climate

-- Megawati is seen as increasingly adrift from the economic crisis, while her ministers are being held hostage by special interests
