    Indonesia is one of a long list of countries which has chosen to relocate their seat of government to a better and improved location. There is often a series of compelling reasons for choosing to make this decision ranging from political, geographical, etc. Often it is a combination of reasons that make it the logical albeit exorbitantly expensive solution.

    Indonesia is building a new capital city because its current one is sinking. This is the official reason given for this colossal decision. However, critics argue that there are far more complex political reasons, like the “president’s vision to modernize the country and redistribute political and economic power across the archipelago away from Jakarta” but that a relocation of the capital city will not solve any of the existing political issues.
