Indonesia’s economy may double in the next six years as the world’s biggest exporter of power- station coal and largest producer of palm oil taps surging demand from India and China, Bloomberg news quoted a research firm as saying.

China, India and Indonesia will generate $10 trillion of wealth for investors by 2015, Nicholas Cashmore, head of Indonesia research at CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, said in a note titled “Chindonesia: Enter the Komodo,” a reference to the reptile found only in eastern Indonesia. The three economies are Asia’s “next growth triangle,” he said.

Feeding the needs of the world’s two most-populated nations as demand from Western countries slows may help President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono meet his target of boosting growth to 7 percent in his second term. Indonesia wants be included among the so-called BRIC nations of Brazil, Russia, India and China, Emil Salim, , a presidential adviser, said.

“Together, China and India are increasingly becoming the biggest marketplace for almost everything sold on the planet,” Cashmore said in the report published Friday.

Indonesia plays a symbiotic role in the emergence of China and India and “as this role becomes more pronounced in years to come, it will boost growth, investment and consumption.”

Indonesia’s economic acceleration provides a case for its inclusion among the BRIC economies, Morgan Stanley said in a report to clients last month.

The $433 billion economy can expand “significantly” more than 7 percent once Yudhoyono fixes the nation’s congested roads, neglected ports and ageing power plants, according to the World Bank.

Yudhoyono is set to win a second term after presidential elections this week, providing the 59-year-old former general with a mandate to double spending on roads and power to $140 billion by 2014.
