Construction worker's stand at a new airport terminal under construction in Balikpapa 
Construction worker's stand at a new airport terminal under construction in Balikpapan, Indonesia's East Kalimantan province on September 6, 2012. The global economic slowdown that has battered the resource sector this year has spared Indonesia's coal capital Balikpapan, which is forging ahead with a recession-defying infrastructure upgrade, partly funded by China. Indonesia has not built a new railway in over 60 years, but the province plans to develop the Kalimantan Railway, jointly funded by a $2.4 billion from Russian Railways, to join a coal port near Balikpapan to mines. Orderly, uncongested streets, affluent residential compounds named after places in Beverly Hills and Paris, as well as low pollution levels, make the city an attractive destination for the expatriates who mostly work in the resources industry and their families.
