Booming commodity sectors-coal, palm oil, and oil and gas (oil)-during the year 2009 bring blessings to a number of Indonesian businessmen. At least, that's reflected in the latest report by Forbes Magazine Asia.

Thursday (3 / 12) yesterday, Forbes issued another 40 richest people of this country. Five of them are newcomers, and four out of five people are entrepreneurs in the commodities sector.

Fifth is Ciliandra Fangiono, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) First Resources, crude palm oil producer, aka crude palm oil (CPO); Sandiaga Uno, one of the owners of Adaro Energy; Hashim Djojohadikusumo, oil tycoons and commercial businesses; Bachtiar Karim, Chairman Musim Mas , producer of CPO; and Kusnan and Rusdi Kirana, owner of the second largest airline in Indonesia, Lion Air.

A fairly prominent Sandiaga Uno. Business started in 1997 with the establishment of PT Recapital Advisors with Rosan Perkasa Roeslani with reckless capital, total wealth has now reached 400 million U.S. dollars, or around Rp 3.76 trillion in foreign exchange USD 9400 per U.S. dollar.

Unfortunately, no reply to Sandiaga short messages and phone calls from Cash. However, in the eyes Rosan, closest friends who is also President Director Recapital Advisors, Sandiaga is smart man who always planned to mature businesses. "No wonder if now he had the success it is today," Rosan said.

The average rise

During 2009, commodity sector really powerful. Just look at our stock performance. In the last 12 months, according to Forbes, Composite Stock Price Index (JCI) in Indonesia Stock Exchange shot up 115 percent, the second highest in Asia after SE Composite Shenzen, China. Issuer-sector issuers hoist of commodities trading.

No wonder entrepreneurs enjoy the right commodity results. Bakrie, for example. In the new Forbes list, the owner of Bumi Resources was up ratings success. Last year, due to the crisis, the richest man's fortune in 2007 dipped 84 percent from 5.4 billion dollars in 2007, so only 850 million U.S. dollars and only at eighth position. This year, the property Aburizal rose again to 2.5 billion dollars and occupies fourth position.

Low Tuck Kwong, the owner of Bayan, was also connected to each other three money. This year, Bayan shares rose to 474 percent. No wonder, Low, who just last year entered the ranks of the 40 richest and nangkring in position 25 with a fortune 214 million U.S. dollars, this year leapt to a 11 position with a fortune of U.S. $ 1.18 billion.

On average, 40 people had wealth is soaring. Total more than doubled, from 21 billion dollars in 2008 was 42 billion U.S. dollars this year. Forbes noted, more than a third of the list made a fortune from the coal sector, CPO, and oil and gas, including four of the five newcomers.

Jump in their property is inversely related to the condition in 2008. In Forbes releases December 12, 2008, the average wealth fell 40 conglomerates were eroded crisis. Numbers, from a total of 40 billion dollars in 2007, so only 21 billion U.S. dollars. That as the global market downturn, the decline in JCI for 54 percent over 2007, and the weakening of the rupiah.

Owner Djarum Group, Budi and Michael Hartono, this year still occupies the first position with a net worth of 7 billion U.S. dollars. The rest is filled by the old faces.

What is missing from this year's Forbes list, among others, former Vice President Jusuf Kalla last year on the 29th position with a fortune of 185 million U.S. dollars; Tan Kian, the owner of a five star hotel JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton, which in 2008 at number 30 with treasure 175 million U.S. dollars; and Hadi Surya, Berlian Laju Tanker owners, in 2008 on the order of 38 to 70 million dollars worth U.S..
