KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. Indonesian President Joko Widodo was sworn in on Sunday for a second five-year term as president, leading the world's third-biggest democracy after a first term marked by heavy infrastructure spending.

In his second and final term, Widodo, a former furniture salesman from outside the military and political elite, has pledged to attract more investment into Southeast Asia's biggest economy and focus on improving the country's human resources.
