Mark van de Water will discuss the development of private foreign investment in late colonial Indonesia. The increase in numbers of individual firms, their expanding volume and accumulation of investment in the Netherlands Indies are shown. The focus is on the years 1910-1940 and on Dutch foreign investment, although investment by other countries is touched upon in passing. The data used in his research originate from a database compiled from the Handboek voor cultuuren handelsondernemingen in Nederlandsch-Indiƫ (Handbook for cultivation and trading companies in the Netherlands Indies).
