The late Indonesian foreign minister Ali Alatas once described the distant and rebellious Indonesian province of East Timor as a ‘‘stone in Indonesia’s shoe’’.
Papua is also a stone in Indonesia’s shoe. It is a stone the size of California, with the last great remaining tracts of virgin forest in south-east Asia. Its wealth in coal, gold, copper, oil, gas and fisheries is colossal. A single mine there is Indonesia’s largest taxpayer.
Migrants from across the archipelago flock to Papua, which hosts the highest economic growth rate in Indonesia. They fill unplanned cities like Jayapura and Timika to bursting; they drive the machinery, staff the hotels and shops, and work the plantations that are transforming once-virgin land into deceitfully green circuit boards.
