Boom time for Indonesia's economy

Southeast Asia's biggest economy grew 6.23 percent in 2012, supported by strong private investment.

    The Indonesian economy is booming, according to the latest figures.

    Its economy grew by more than six percent last year, which is slightly slower than in 2011, but is still better than most developed countries.

    By 2050, it is forecast to become the world's fourth largest economy.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Jakarta on whether this is "too much" for the country to handle.
