Indonesia

  • With a nominal GDP of USD 932 billion, Indonesia is the 16th largest economy in the world and the largest economy in ASEAN (generating approximately 40% of its GDP). Indonesia has registered 5.3% average growth over the last five years. Under the leadership of President Joko Widodo (“Jokowi”), the government has set up an ambitious plan to invest in sorely needed infrastructure upgrades aimed at reducing notoriously high logistics costs. The economy is projected to grow 5.2% this year and 5.3% in 2018, on the back of continued economic reforms.

    Indonesia is trying to rebound from a politically tumultuous 2016. The country was engulfed in rising religious fervor ahead of the Jakarta gubernatorial election. Despite having enjoyed a 70% approval rating Governor Basuki Tjahaya Purnama (“Ahok”) lost the election amidst a dubious blasphemy trial for allegedly insulting the Quran. He was sentenced for two years in prison. The sentencing has left the majority of his supporters baffled, with the international community expressing fresh concerns with Indonesia’s judicial system. With another round of regional and presidential election slated for 2018 and 2019 respectively, upcoming sectarian issues and religious rhetoric loom ominously.
