Jakarta, Indonesia

6th CFO Innovation Indonesia Forum

About the Forum

Over the past decade, Indonesia has been a consistent performer in an otherwise weak and volatile global economy. Growth has averaged 5.5 per cent a year since 2003 and the economy has proven remarkably resilient, withstanding numerous shocks including the global financial crisis of 2008–09, the end of the China-fuelled commodity boom around late 2011, and acute market pressures during the ‘taper tantrum’ of May 2013. However, the global economic environment is set to become more difficult, with liquidity conditions tightening and risks of escalating protectionism.
As 2019 is the year of presidential campaign, Joko Widodo’s government has dropped nearly US$20 billion of infrastructure projects to focus on social welfare and price controls on staple goods such as fuel, power, rice and sugar. 
What impacts these initiatives will have on Indonesia's investment climate? 
Will Indonesia continue a perceived over-reliance on Chinese investment at a time when economic growth is stagnating? 
On the micro front, risk management issues related to the recent natural disasters continue to be on CFO’s top priorities to protect and anticipate business risks arising from unpredictable natural calamities. 
With many energy and infrastructure projects to come on line during 2019 – 20, related industries could anticipate continued investments, backed by the FDIs and government financing. This, coupled with increasing household consumption will be fuelling the stable GDP growth to 5.3% per annum in 2019 and beyond, as per ADB.
