The global monetary crisis in 2007-2008 and the focus of development on climate changes make it important to promote a healthy economic growth based on the local resources, The economic crisis, which has slowed down the economic growth and has caused job losses which result in increasing unemployment and poverty, should alter the focus of Indonesian economic development in the future to be based on renewable and sustainable local resources.

In agricultural culture, plantation sector is the source of sustainable economic growth because of its geographical, demographic, and cultural potentials.
