Messages of condolences were also relayed by several other Malaysian leaders, including Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and cabinet members, via Twitter and Facebook.

Elfien said that that Dirgantara wanted to continue Habibie's legacy by finishing the certification of its latest model, the 19-person capacity N219, by the end of this year. "His courage and vision during the period of reformation were appreciated in Australia".

Taking over from Suharto, who had ruled the world's most populous Muslim majority country with an iron fist for 32 years, Habibie held power for just 17 months.

Habibie was a trained aerospace engineer who had been working in Germany for almost two decades when then-President Suharto convinced him to come back home in 1974 and lead an effort to industrialize Indonesia's economy.

Habibie became the science and technology minister and applied his proximity to Suharto to go after pet initiatives, together with a state aircraft maker, a steel refinery and various protection-similar industries.

Indonesia Habibie death

"We will always remember your message: don't get into too many discussions, don't be whiny, but immerse yourself into the process of adding value consistently and Indonesia surely will be prominent in Southeast Asia and the world", Widodo said in his farewell speech.

Habibie ushered in a number of democratic reforms, including greater press freedoms and the release of political prisoners.

Responding to intercontinental criticism of Indonesia's occupation of Portugal's previous colony of East Timor, Habibie stunned Indonesians by asserting in January 1999 a approach to hold a referendum less than United Nations supervision on self-perseverance, supplying a alternative concerning specific autonomy and independence, but East Timorese voted overwhelmingly to split from Indonesia. "He gave us two options and now East Timor is a free and independent nation".

The brief meeting took place after Habibie's funeral at the Kalibata Heroes Cemetery here and was also attended by Indonesian Vice-President Jusuf Kalla. Habibie was born in June 1936 in a small town in South Sulawesi, and studied aviation and aerospace engineering in Germany and the Netherlands before returning home in the mid-1970s.

"Malaysia regards former president BJ Habibie as Malaysia's closest friend and his passing is a huge loss for the region". His father was of native Sulawesi descent and his mother a Javanese noblewoman from the historic sultanate of Yogyakarta.

Habibie, concurrently ex-research and technology minister, is survived by his two sons: Ilham Akbar and Thareq Kemal.
