Indonesia Economic Outlook

September 19, 2017

Growth is set to accelerate in H2 after a moderate, but stable, performance in H1. Recent economic data points to an upturn: Industrial production rebounded in July, and in August the manufacturing PMI returned to expansionary territory and the trade balance swung back to surplus. In addition, government spending is expected to accelerate going forward. The government has a number of large-scale infrastructure and investment projects in the pipeline, including upgrades to railway links and the creation of “11 new Balis” or tourism destinations. Despite ambitious government spending plans, the economy has failed to kick into a higher gear, and growth has hovered around 5.0% for the past year.
