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. Despite global policy uncertainty and the risk of increased trade protectionism, the world economy is becoming more supportive with faster economic growth, a rebound in international trade, relatively accommodative financial conditions, and a moderate recovery in commodity prices. 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).
