Indonesia Economic Prospects (IEP), December 2020: Towards a Secure and Fast Recovery

December 17, 2020

Virtual Event

The Indonesia Economic Prospects (IEP) is a bi-annual World Bank flagship report that provides an impartial and up-to-date assessment of recent macroeconomic developments and outlook as well as thematic development challenges for the Indonesian economy. The IEP report aims to inform the public policy debate and is intended for a wide audience, including policy makers, business leaders, financial market participants, the community of investment analysts and professionals and the wider public.

  • The IEP has two main parts with specific and complementary objectives. The first part highlights key developments over recent months, and places these in a longer-term and global context. Based on these developments, and on policy changes over the period, the IEP regularly updates the outlook for Indonesia’s economy. This part of the report contributes to the critical need for regular and sound macroeconomic monitoring of the COVID-19 crisis. The second part of the report provides an in-depth examination of selected economic and policy issues, and analysis of medium-term development challenges.

    • The first part of the December edition of the IEP assess the recovery from the COVID-19 shock and policy priorities to accelerate the recovery. 
    • The second part of the report will analyze the constraints and policies to achieving greater food security.
