Indonesia seeks edge over China

Workers say boom in foreign investment is not trickling down to them.

    Rising labour costs in China are sending foreign investors looking for opportunities in other countries with Indonesia keen to market itself as an alternative.

    The country has a large pool of cheap workers and an expanding infrastructure and has seen a rise in international orders.

    But many workers say they are losing out on the boom.
