Indonesia Economic Outlook
November 17, 2020The economy contracted sharply in Q3 according to recent data, although at a softer rate than in Q2. Private consumption and fixed investment were both down notably amid lingering domestic social mobility restrictions. However, public spending surged as the government was finally able to expedite stimulus measures. Moreover, the external sector contributed markedly to GDP—albeit largely due to import compression, as exports continued to fall markedly. Turning to the fourth quarter, early signs are muted amid ongoing restrictions in Jakarta and stubbornly high infection rates. In October, the manufacturing PMI continued to signal deteriorating operating conditions, while consumer sentiment worsened, and retail sales contracted at a sharper rate according to preliminary estimates.
Indonesia Economic GrowthThe economy is set to rebound next year, supported by fiscal and monetary stimulus and the likely lessening impact of Covid-19. Moreover, the passage of the omnibus bill could buoy investment to an extent. However, uncertainty over the evolution and duration of the pandemic and the timing of a vaccine clouds the outlook. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect GDP to expand 5.0% in 2021, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. In 2022, GDP is seen growing 5.1%.
