Economic Outlook

Indonesia’s economy lost steam in the first quarter of 2015, expanding at the slowest pace in over five years. Moreover, gloomy economic data continues to emerge, suggesting that growth in the second quarter remained lackluster.

Retail sales decelerated in May and the manufacturing PMI remained entrenched in contraction territory.

Pressure is mounting on President Joko Widodo to revitalize the economy. The President’s approval rating has fallen in recent weeks and rumors of a cabinet reshuffle have emerged. While the government’s highly-touted public spending program is designed to shore up the economy, limited progress has been made on new infrastructure projects due to bureaucratic obstacles and land disputes.
