HALFWAY up a mountain and Indonesia Night is in full swing at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. The room is packed with guests tucking into nasi goreng, kerupuk and ikan pepes.

Papuan dancers decked in neon gyrate to the music and everyone’s in the mood. One senior government official, caught up in the exuberance, mounts the stage while wearing a feathered Papuan headdress and belts out What a Wonderful World.
