To members of Otsubo's Seminar:
I'm back from Jakarta, Indonesia where I spent one year as an economic advisor for the National Development Planning Agency of Indonesia (BAPPENAS).
With the Asian financial crisis, Indonesia has been transforming herself into a democratic and market-oriented society. In this occasion, I would like to thank you all for your patience and letting me go back to an exciting field of development.
