Indonesia is the 4th most populous country in the world with a population of 265 million and 7th largest in terms of GDP (PPP) at US$3.49 trillion. Jakarta is Indonesia's capital city with a population of 10 million people and is part of the Jakarta metropolitan area (Greater Jakarta) which covers a population of 30 million people. In fact, the population of Greater Jakarta is expected to grow to 35.6 million people by 2030.

Jakarta is predicted  to be unliveable by 2050, prompting President Joko Widodo to announce a move of Indonesia's capital to a new capital city on 29 April 2019, kicking off the creation of a 10-year, US$33-billion-dollar plan to transfer all government offices to a new capital city.Here, we look at the possible reasons that may have prompted the relocation plan.
