As I was about to say ...
A couple of days ago I thought of mentioning that there was to be a follow up to the Indonesia Infrastructure 2005 extravaganza, held in January this year, on 14 - 16 November. I knew this because there was a quarter-page ad in the Jakarta Post.
I was a bit bemused by the ad as it seemed to be a repeat of the one used for the original conference, headed as it was by 'Indonesia Infrastructure 2005', with appropriate blurb."Through this Exhibition our State Owned Enterprises, Local Governments both at Provincial and District levels, will demonstrate the full scope of their national and regional priority developments to potential investors and partners attending the Summit. Furthermore, we are pleased to invite all private sector enterprises waiting to participate in our government's projects to join our exhibition, present and promote how they believe they can contribute and sustaining our ambitions in infrastructure development."

The main reason I didn't post this a couple of days ago was that the website given at the bottom of the ad ~ www.iisummit2005.com
~ is indeed solely concerned with the earlier trough of plenty.
Well, lo and behold, in today's Post there is another ad with the same format and blurb but modified.
This tells us that Indonesia Infrastructure 2006
will be held, not in November, but from 9 - 11 February 2006
. The reasons why can be seen in the official website
which, as in all official Indonesian websites, is riddled with Flash graphics.
Anyway, if you're interested, have a butchers at it and get ready for the next carve up.
