Balikpapan Harbor

BALIKPAPAN, Indonesia -- After a week or so in Borneo I headed by boat to CAMP KENANGAN, a timber concession operated by the International Timber Company Indonesia (ITCI) upriver from Balikpapan. Do you see the big refinery in the background? Natural resource extraction, -- whether of live products, such as wood, fossil products, such as coal and petroleum, or mineral products, such as copper and gold -- is an important component of Indonesia's economy.
