Economic outlook is positive with a supportive global economy and strong domestic fundamentals.

With a more conducive world economy, coupled with improved domestic fundamentals, the outlook for the Indonesian economy continues to be positive.

Indonesia’s real GDP growth is projected to increase from 5.0 percent in 2016 to 5.2 percent this year, and further strengthen to 5.3 percent in 2018 (table below).
