An Indonesia executive, Harvey Goldstein is a longtime advocate for education and a supporter of CTY. Founded almost 35 years ago, the CTY summer program offers a diverse curriculum to students in the fields of math, science, writing, foreign language, and much more. The program also provides education in relevant areas such as employment and the economy. Former participants of the CTY summer program include Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg, Google co-founder Sergey Brin, and entertainer Stefani Germanotta (better known as Lady Gaga). While the experience proves invaluable, students and parents must be able to afford the near S$9,000 price tag.

Harvey Goldstein is the founder and chairman of Harvest International Indonesia. In that role, he advises entrepreneurs and venture capitalists on the country's business practices. Harvey Goldstein also served as a member of the American Arbitration Association’s advisory council for the Asia/Pacific Center for Resolution of International Trade Disputes. When considering a long-term commitment to a foreign national, investors often look at the country's record of growth and its potential for further growth. In both cases, Indonesia makes its case as one of the most desirable financial opportunities in the world. Between 2011 and 2012, the country experienced economic growth of 6.2 percent, a number expected to surge to nearly 7 percent by 2014. However, it is the potential for sustained growth that truly attracts outside investments. More than 60 percent of the nation's population is between the ages of 20 and 65, and that indicates a significant pool of healthy workers and spenders without an excessive elderly population to decrease that trend in the near future. More than 90 percent of the country reports a sense of security in their finances, despite living in relative poverty, and that is an indication that even the lower class will spend when the opportunity arises.
Harvey Goldstein has a long record of serving business interests in Indonesia and in Southeast Asia.

The bank was founded to achieve those goals and to help countries with matters pertaining to finance and technical assistance. In its role as a provider of technical and financial expertise, The World Bank spearheads dozens of projects intended to improve conditions in developing countries. The Indonesia Second Power Transmission Development Project is one of the bank's leading projects.

To accomplish that goal, the project's leaders will take a two-pronged approach. First, they will rehabilitate numerous substations in the operating area by adding new transformers. Next, they will build new substations, a process that involves installing transformers and complementary equipment.
