International Reserves in Indonesia
Indonesia - International ReservesThe economy likely grew fairly strongly in the fourth quarter, bolstered by healthy consumption and fixed investment, although high-frequency indicators are mixed. The manufacturing PMI averaged slightly lower in Q4 compared to Q3 against a backdrop of swirling global trade tensions, while the country posted a record trade deficit in the period on a combination of lackluster exports and double-digit import growth. That said, import growth did ebb from the extremely high readings seen in prior quarters amid higher import tariffs. In addition, the tourist sector performed well, while the rupiah has recovered sharply since November and foreign reserves—which were depleted in Q1-Q3—increased. On the political front, in late December the government finally reached an agreement with mining company Freeport-McMoRan over the huge Grasberg copper mine, which will see the government acquire a majority stake in the mine. In exchange, Freeport should be able to continue operations until 2041.
