Abstract

The racial tragedy in Batavia in 1740 generally has a great social and economic impact in Java. Chinese people, some of whom were the sugar industry owners possessing the links from the raw materials to finished products were targeted in this terrible situation. They then ran away from this chaotic condition bringing their sugar industry skills and this fact led the sugar industries to spread out of Batavia around Java. Batavia, which was initially as the sugar industry basis, therefore, was not surrounded by cane plantations; meanwhile, these types of plantations were spreading in the north coastline of Java and some parts of Central Java and East Java remote areas became sugar industry centers and the people of each area, therefore, were developing.
