PNGMK few years back asked this question why there are not enough Indonesia engineers.

This post explains it a bit:

I think PNGMK is correct with his observation but this articles actually adds to the puzzle. Assuming, the quoted text concerns mostly general education stage (primary/secondary) Indonesia should have an army of perhaps not that well educated people but surely a sufficient pool for the next stages. So what happens next? No inexpensive domestic, tertiary education available?

Something seems to be clearly wrong. I work in a multinational, technical research environment and I can recall one person only who is from Indonesia (and she does now more admin type of the job). Granted I don't know the background of all our staff, I know at least a few from countries like Vietnam or Thailand not to mention India, China, Malaysia.
