The Indonesia Economic Prospects (IEP), a successor of the Indonesia Economic Quarterly, is a six-monthly World Bank report that aims to provide an impartial and up-to-date assessment of recent global and domestic macroeconomic developments, outlook and risks, as well as specific development challenges for the Indonesian economy.

  • In this edition of the IEP, the analysis is delivered in two parts:

     

    • First, it highlights key developments in the Indonesian economy over recent months, and places these in a longer-term context. Based on these developments, and on policy changes over the period, the IEP regularly updates the outlook for Indonesia’s economy.  The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic highlights the continued need for sound macroeconomic monitoring to help the economy weather the impact of the crisis.
    • Second, it will discuss challenges and policy priorities to balance Government efforts in managing the infection, with the cushioning the effects of the economic downturn, as well as repositioning the economy for a rapid and full economic recovery over the next few years. Deeper reforms are needed today to set the foundations for stronger and more inclusive economic development.
