Indonesians vote in presidential election

Indonesians will elect the country's next president on Wednesday, determining the direction of the world's fourth-most-populous nation for the next five years. Three candidates -- Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto, former Central Java Gov. Ganjar Pranowo and former Jakarta Gov. Anies Baswedan -- are vying to replace two-term President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo. Wednesday's vote is the fifth since the Southeast Asian country began democratic reforms in 1998.

Indonesia hosts international motor show

More than 20 carmakers will take part in the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS). The event, which is being held in Jakarta, starts Thursday. Exhibitors from Japan include Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and others. Japanese manufacturers hold a market share of around 80% in Southeast Asia but are struggling to stay in the race to offer electric vehicles. Their South Korean rival Hyundai, which already has an EV plant in Indonesia, as well as China's BYD and Vietnam's VinFast will also show off their cars at the show.
