“….. Here is the prediction: China will turn North Korea loose soon. The alliance will dissolve, or become stale. There will be political upheaval in China. Not a coup and not a revolution. Within the inner circles of that which you call Chinese politics, there will be a re-evaluation of goals and monetary policy. Eventually, you will see a break with North Korea, allowing still another dictator to fall and unification to occur with the south. ….”

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Indonesia’s pull factor

By CECILIA KOK, The Star Online

DRIVEN by its strong domestic consumption, Indonesia has proved its economic resilience in the midst of a global slowdown after posting a relatively strong growth of 4% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the three months to June.

With a population of 226 million – the fourth largest in the world – Indonesia is increasingly being seen as an attractive investment destination by many foreign investors, including those from Malaysia.

In fact, Malaysian companies have become more active with their investments since the 1990s to tap the huge market opportunities that the country offers.

Among the sectors where Malaysian presence can be found are plantations, banking, telecommunications and infrastructure.

Cultivating growth

It is believed that about 50% of Indonesia’s oil palm plantations are controlled by Malaysian companies, including IJM Plantations Bhd, United Plantations Bhd, Asiatic Development Bhd, Sime Darby Bhd, Kuala Lumpur Kepong Bhd and IOI Corp Bhd.

Analysts opine that the limited agriculture land in Malaysia would continue to drive Malaysian planters to expand their plantation land bank.

Take IJM Plantations. Since last year, the company has been eyeing to acquire 40,000ha of oil palm estates to add to its existing land bank.

With 70% of its acquisition target met as at end-July, IJM Plantations is expected to complete its buying spree of oil palm estates there by the end of the year.

But expanding plantation land bank is not a smooth process, as foreign companies can be bogged down by costly land prices and bureaucratic red tape. In addition, companies also face the risks of “disruptive” changes in the terms and regulations set by authorities.

Singular Asset Management Sdn Bhd chief investment officer Teoh Kok Lin explains that such risks are a common problem in emerging economies like Indonesia.

But he says conditions have improved over the last five years, particularly under the current leadership that has been focusing on providing political stability and implementing sound economic policies to boost Indonesia’s economy.

Huge lure

Teoh commends the liberal policies practised by the Indonesian government for its banking system, such as allowing foreign equity ownership of up to 100%, as a huge draw to investors.

With banking penetration being just 33% of its GDP, the market offers tremendous medium- to long-term prospects for foreign bankers.

Among the Malaysian banks that have jumped on the Indonesian bandwagon are Bumiputra-Commerce Holdings Bhd (BCHB), through CIMB Niaga, and Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank), through its controversial acquisition of PT Bank Internasional Indonesia (BII).

BCHB’s investment has been a fruitful venture, as CIMB Niaga accounted for 22% of the group’s pre-tax profit for the second quarter ended June, compared with 12% in the previous quarter. Contributions from its Indonesian operations are the main driver for its 2% y-o-y net profit growth to RM663.2mil for the quarter in review.

As for Maybank, it is targeting to break even on its investment in BII only by 2013. Maybank completed its acquisition of the bank at a whopping RM8.6bil in October last year.

In the telecommunications sector, Axiata Group Bhd and Maxis Communications Bhd have become active players in that market.

Axiata holds about 84% stake in Indonesia’s third-largest mobile phone operator, PT Excelcomindo Pratama Tbk, while Maxis owns 44% in PT Natrindo Telepon Seluler.

Going forward, Teoh believes that the pressing need for quality infrastructure there will make the construction sector the next attraction for Malaysian companies.

He sees emerging opportunities in the sector given the government focus in the area. In the Indonesian 2009 budget, US$7.5bil had been allocated for infrastructure spending and an additional US$703mil for labour intensive infrastructure projects in the country.
