Make your expat project in Jakarta successful

Nicknamed "Big Durian" by locals, Jakarta is Indonesia's economic heart. As a dynamic megacity, the capital city can be quite advantageous for expatriates seeking new opportunities. It is the world's second most densely populated city, but it provides quality living to expatriates thanks to its perfect blend of culture, traditions and modernism. Living in Jakarta can thus be an enriching experience.
