JAKARTA: The Indonesian military will be ending, in a few months' time, long years of involvement in business - as part of post-Suharto reforms to boost professionalism of the army and eradicate corruption within its ranks.
A presidential decree to transfer military business assets to government ministries will be issued next month, and the handover will take place after that, Defence Minister Juwono Sudarsono told The Straits Times.
He was speaking in a door-stop interview before he met President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the presidential palace here earlier this week.
