Despite a leading role in the behind-the-scenes moves to force Mr Suharto to quit, Ginandjar Kartasasmita remains at the heart of efforts to revive Indonesia's economy. Mr Ginandjar, who negotiated the country's latest International Monetary Fund package, has been retained as co-ordinating minister for economics, finance and industry despite contributing to the demise of his former boss. Diplomatic sources said it was the refusal of leading cabinet ministers, headed by Mr Ginandjar, to serve in any new reform cabinet headed by Mr Suharto and their warning that the country faced complete economic collapse that finally persuaded the embattled president to resign after 32 years. Mr Ginandjar, a 57-year-old retired air-force general, is respected but is believed to have a strong nationalistic streak which came to the fore during a stand-off with the IMF in March over the country's economic reform programme. He was quoted in a Jakarta newspaper last Sunday saying: 'We welcome international bodies such as the IMF and the World Bank to help Indonesia. But if that means they can impose their will or humiliate us, we would be better off without their aid.' While he remains, many have fallen. Fuad Bawazier, who had been appointed finance minister in Mr Suharto's last cabinet reshuffle in mid-March, was among those chopped. He was widely seen as a puppet of the former president's second son Bambang Trihatmodjo and eldest daughter Siti 'Tutut' Hardyanti Rukmana. Indonesia's new finance minister is Bambang Subianto, a technocrat and staunch banking reformist who had been fired from his position as a top finance ministry official by Mr Bawazier just a month ago after having crossed swords in the past. Mr Subianto warned about Indonesia's looming banking-sector problems long before they occurred and did not win many friends in doing so. Also gone is timber tycoon Mohammad 'Bob' Hasan, who was recently appointed trade and industry minister by his golfing buddy Mr Suharto, even though he admitted he did not know the first thing about government. Mr Hasan has been replaced by Rahardi Ramelan, a technology guru and one of Dr Habibie's closest allies. Another newcomer is Muslim intellectual Adi Sasono, who has been appointed minister for co-operatives and small enterprises despite being a vocal critic of Dr Habibie. A number of the more able operators from Mr Suharto's government have been retained - among them Kuntoro Mangkusubroto. Mr Kuntoro was sacked last year as deputy mines and energy minister after daring to block the Suharto family from trying to take a stake in the supposed giant Bre-X gold find, which ended up being a hoax. In March he was resurrected as mines and energy minister, only to land himself in hot water again by lifting state subsidies on fuel to appease the IMF.
