DBS Predicted Indonesia's Economy in 2018 is Growing Faster Than 2017

Indonesia is one of the countries with the strongest economic fundamentals in the Asia region. Various indicators show a good performance, such as the ratio of government debt which is below 30% of GDP, one of the lowest among developing countries.

With a Government that is stable and relatively low political risk, Indonesia's economic potential to move more quickly in the next few years. External factors being the main economic growth of Indonesia towing, especially those from the rise in commodity prices.

"We estimate that Indonesia's economic growth will rise 5.3% and 5.4% in 2018 and 2019," said DBS Group Research Economist Gundy Cahyadi 'Indonesia in 2018/19: Higher gear?' which was released November 20, 2017.

The challenge is how the Government can accumulate a variety of indicators to spur economic growth faster. Like, encourage private investment that since 2013 percentage decline. The Government's efforts through infrastructure development seems to have reaped results. This is visible from the investment growth which reached 7.1% in quarter III-2017, the highest since the quarter I-2013. The investment is estimated to account for 35% towards GDP 2017 growth.

Private investment in the count because of the limited government fiscal space The Constitution governs the restriction of a maximum budget deficit of 3% of GDP. It is estimated the deficit will reach 2.6% by 2018, higher than the Government's estimate of 2.2%. DBS Group Research predicted a rise in the deficit driven mainly by a decline in potential tax revenue, rather than budget increases.

However, the trend of rising world crude oil prices will boost the country's revenue from the oil and gas sector. In the calculation of the DBS Group Research, any rise in oil prices by 10% will give you an extra budget of Rp 6.7 trillion in state budget.

Unlike most other countries, Indonesia is one of the countries that do not take advantage of the growing global demand for manufactured products. Indonesia's exports still rely on the commodity sector, particularly coal which grew 49 percent, crude palm oil amounted to 44%, and oil and gas amounted to 21%. While exports of manufactured products only grew 2.5%.

The Government has committed to reduce the dependence of commodity products. This is done by publishing the 16 Policy Reform Package in the last two years. Proven, Indonesia's ranking in the Ease of Doing Business were released World Bank soared from 106 ranking in 2016 be 72 in 2017.

Foreign direct investment into the manufacturing sectors listed record highs of US$16.6 billion in 2016. Investors no longer makes the mining sector as an investment destination, but rather the sector of machinery and electronics.

The pressure of inflation, estimated to be likely to be stable mainly caused the price of groceries. This as the Government repair distribution lines so price disparity interregional decreases. As for the biggest inflation risk comes from the increase in the price of crude oil, especially in the transport sector and electricity accounted about 25% of the consumer price index.

Wide range of indicators is expected to encourage the consumption of households. The issue, improving commodity sector that occurred the last time does not directly impact people's income. The ability to buy, especially in the community of the low income class, is still low.

As seen from the consumption of non-staple goods or discretionary goods the community dropped to 4.5%, well below the conditions three years ago amounted to 6%.

"Indonesia's economic growth will be higher if the growth in consumption discretionary goods community higher," said Gundy.

Franklin Templeton Investment: Emerging markets are still bullish in 2018

Mark Mobius, the Emerging Markets Fund Manager of Franklin Templeton Investments, predicts emerging markets will continue to increase in the upcoming trends in 2018. According to him, it is based on the history of the growth of that ever happening in emerging markets.

At this time, according to him, the rapid growth in the market for a wide range of developing countries in Asia, Africa, and other countries such as Russia and Brazil have just begun. Looking at the history, he believes this growth could still continue on next year and the following years.

"Emerging markets have a history of growth that is optimistic. If being bullish, usually movement that will last for five years, "said Mobius in a panel discussion on the show Bloomberg The Year Ahead in Asia Jakarta.

The high-growth emerging markets ever reached on the 2007, estimated could happen again in the next few years. Mobius even convinced emerging markets can grow 20% from a record growth in 2007.

Although he is very optimistic towards the growth of the emerging markets in the future, but there is still some risk that must be considered. One such risk is geopolitical.

"There is a great possibility of United States military will do something to put a stop to North Korea. If that happens, the market will react and could crash at any time, "he explained.

Why Chinese investors love to invest in Indonesia?

It's been no secret that a lot of investors from China are fond of infusing capital in Indonesia. A variety of fields, ranging from media, e-commerce to virtual reality to be areas that are enticing to do. This brings up the question, why the heck are they so actually interested in investing in Indonesia? What specials from Indonesia than other countries?

Four practitioners of Chinese investment reveal the reasons behind such interest. They are a founder of Convergence Ventures Adrian Li, co-founder of 01VC Ian Goh, Tony Qu (managing partner ATM Capital), and AppWorks Ventures Joseph Chan. What they said, let's take a look below.


Speaking of potential in Indonesia, of course we've already learned that the number of people of Indonesia is a very large potential market. But the advantages not only that. One of the interesting things in Indonesia is that over the past four to five years, data has shown anyone "player" that comes out as the winner. It means choosing what companies are worth investing in is not difficult thing.

The Government of Indonesia also continues to actively perform regulation follows the movement of the digital economy, especially on the side of fintech. Currently the Chinese investors indeed are expands into South East Asia, with the two sectors as the focus i.e. e-commerce as well as a digital wallet. The climate of Indonesia regulation tends to be friendly is in line with their vision.

According to them, the exuberance of fintech in this country are caused by two things, namely:
  • Poor condition of banking in Indonesia
  • The high interest in the youth towards the development of technology.
Bank transactions in Indonesia classified as ineffective, even slower. So among the young who are tech savvy, alternative services will be greeted with delight, whether in the realm of B2B, B2C or C2C.

But it does not mean that Indonesia had no barriers. The classical constraints that still we need to solve is the problem of infrastructure. But these barriers can also be viewed as oportunities. Chinese investors are interested in bringing the technology goes into Indonesia to improve the quality of the internet in here.


Chinese investors vied for the Southeast Asia region as target expansion, but Indonesia had a specific reason that makes it interesting. This is because Indonesia has similarities with China in ancient times. The condition of Indonesia in 2017 is similar to China in 2004, or by India in 2007.

What are the similarities?
  • The large number of startup sprung coupled entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Interest in e-commerce is very high.
  • Conditions of mobile technology-first.
  • The amount of capital that rotates the digital industry in Indonesia are still classified as small.

The same thing happened when China was at first, a condition where investors from Silicon Valley in droves come to bring in capital. As a result, any Chinese digital industry is growing very rapidly. Similarly, China now wants to be the "Silicon Valley investors of Indonesia".


Although been penetrating into Indonesia, foreign investors also understand that Indonesia had local players. Thus they feel Indonesia's local company will become the ruler here. Indonesia's digital giants still continues to grow, and in the future will be the giant in the Southeast Asian regional level.

The strength of a solid local is growing due to various factors. One is the knowledge of the terrain. Indonesia people better know what is wanted by Indonesia market. For example, here media and entertainment is very popular, but two things were not so big in America and China.

The problem of logistics is also not something that can be mastered in a short time. Giants of e-commerce in Indonesia is not only selling the goods. They also sell pipeline (workflow) logistics. This can only be obtained when we've "played" for a long time.


When asked about what is the most important sector is done in Indonesia, these four startup investors give different answers. Adrian Li assumed that most important is grit aka steadiness. Being an entrepreneur is very heavy work, and we can not sent someone to work on this sector or that sector. We must obey the words of the heart, then from there looking for a founder market fit.

Ian Goh on the other hand consider that the mobility sector/logistics, fintech, as well as B2B is currently the hottest sector. He wanted these sectors more earnest in Indonesia. In addition, the startup takes passion and ability to form a great team. We should not be "lone ranger".

Meanwhile Joseph Chan argue just simply: just go online. Whatever you do, the most important you have to solve a real problem. Take advantage of the internet to create solutions, then investors will open the door to work together and change the market

Indonesia's Integrated Industrial Estate

The Indonesia government has developed a number of special economic areas (KEK) since 2010. The main goal the establishment of SEZS is attracting foreign investment, particularly by providing various incentives in the form of tax incentives, customs incentives such exemption or reduction of customs tariff of import duties, as well as investment incentives.

Special economic area usually also consists of certain industrial cluster with specific specialties, which is associated with economic potential and local resources. For example the KEK in Sei Mangke, North Sumatra, which focus on downsream of agricultural products. Much of the KEK reaped success, but there are also less-developed because of lack of support infrastructure or wrong concept.

Currently, the Government intends to make some sort of economic or industrial area to the area that has been growing. The plan was still brewing in cabinet-level. The area of interest is the industrial area (KI) in Bekasi, Karawang, Purwakarta, West Java and. This area would be used as a special corridor to attract high-tech industry investment, such as automotive and electronics. The corridor is expected to be the motor of industrialization in Indonesia.

The Government's ambition is to make the industries in the three regencies were to be integrated as a world class integrated industrial area, even being the largest in Asia. There are currently 21 industrial areas (KI) and the 10 prospective new KI in that three areas.

There are a number of great KI players in this corridor, as Jababeka, Lippo Cikarang, MM2100, and Deltamas. In Cikarang, even would stand the most modern, self-contained city in Southeast Asia, build by Lippo Group, namely Meikarta, which gobbled up investment at least Rp 278 trillion (USD 20 billion). Meikarta satellite town cover 5,000 local companies, international, and six modern industrial parks.

This strategic corridor surrounded six mega infrastructure construction of the Government, namely the fast train from Jakarta-Bandung, Patimban Port, the international airport in Kertajati, light rail train (LRT) toll road, Jakarta-Cikampek kites, as well as system a monorail linking the industrial areas in the vicinity.

This area is also the area of the automotive industry and electronics Indonesia, with annual production of about one million cars and 10 million motorcycles, as well as millions of refrigerators, TVs and household appliances. Thousands of giant multinational and national companies to build factories and bases its business on this corridor, with the support of hundreds of thousands of staff and millions of workers. The big names that are not foreigners set up factories in this corridor, including Astra, Honda, Toyota, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Panasonic, Toshiba, Samsung, and Hankook. The corridor is also known as the 'Detroit of Indonesia'.

As the headquarters of a number of major industry top-tier, reasonable if the Government gives special attention to the corridors of Bekasi, Karawang, Purwakarta. Moreover, the auto industry's supply chain is following a strategic industry in Indonesia which contribute about 28 percent to the total manufacturing production that absorbs 1.5 million work force. Installed production capacity of car industry reached 2.2 million units per year, while the motor is 10 million more units per year.

The Government indeed has yet to give the name or format for this corridor. That is obviously not the special economic region. Whatever its name, the Government certain incentives worth giving. In this context, Governments need to provide adequate infrastructure support, good access to transport, energy and telecommunications. Access between an industrial area in the corridor also must be well connected. Thus was created the logistics and cost efficiency is low.

To that end, the Government must map out accurately what is required by an industrial area in the corridors of these three regencies. Because this is not a special economic region, the incentive is needed rather than fiscal, but rather at ease licensing, support infrastructure, the availability of land area, and so on.

Another aspect to be noted is the integration in terms of the management of the area. Currently, supervision management of the area still held by each district, so often a problem as administration permissions. Therefore, need to be considered in order for supervision are in one of the higher coordination, such special authority bodies. In addition, the Government needs to strive in order to access transportation between regions are connected properly.

If all of these requirements can be realized, Indonesia will have an integrated world-scale industrial area that is able to attract massive investment. Thus, the three-regency corridor not only became the center of new growth, but also provide multiple impacts (multiplier effect) are great and absorb significant amounts of labor.

Investments drive Indonesia's economic growth significantly

Indonesia is now transformed into one of the country's favourite investment destinations. With a large population, natural resources are still abundant, rising purchasing power, plus demographic bonus, making Indonesia like a ' beautiful girl ' in the eyes of investors.

Of course, there is not an easy to make Indonesia the main choice of investment. A long journey investing in Indonesia now have reached the age of 50 years.

Started when Constitution Number 1 Year 1967 regarding foreign capital investment, and Constitution Number 6 Year 1968 regarding domestic capital investment put in place.

At that time, in the new order era, the Government formed a body of Foreign Capital Investment Considerations (BPPMA) as set out in the Decree of the Presidium of the Cabinet Number 17 in 1967. Then, over time, Constitution Number 20 Year 1973, concerning the establishment of The Investment Coordination Board (BKPM).

But in the era of reform, to expedite the development of the national economy, realize the political and economic sovereignty of Indonesia, as well as to deal with the changing global economy, the Government issued Constitution Number 25 Year 2007 about Investment. Beleid was born in order to created a conducive investment climate, legal certainty, fair, and efficient.

The current head of BKPM, Thomas Lembong, argued that the presence of a proven investment pushed Indonesia's economic wheel. A year after the Investment Constitution enacted, Indonesia's economic growth reached 10.9 percent. And in 1970, Indonesia managed to suppress inflation to under 10 percent.

Of course, in the past 50 years the investment tap is opened, investments are experiencing ups and downs. Mainly due to social and political turmoil in domestic and global conditions. For example, when the political crisis whack in 1998, economic drop and stagnant investment. Post-war reform of 1998, the social conditions of domestic politics in Indonesia that is still not stable making investors doubt infusing capital.

However, slowly but surely, the BKPM was moving fast by doing coordination with ministries and other institutions, as well as pushing the friendly investment regulations. BKPM work actively with any open representative offices in eight countries to convince investors that Indonesia is the right choice to invest. The eight countries, among others, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Australia, United Kingdom, United States, and South Korea.

Repairs carried out simultaneous, among others since the year 2004 system simplifies service conducting capital investment through a system of One-Stop Services (PSA) for service approval, licensing and facility investment for foreign and domestic, centralized and implemented by BKPM. that was then enhanced with National One Door Integrated Service (PTSP) based on Presidential Regulation Number 97 Year 2014. And this time, the PTSP Center of BKPM has received the approval from 22 ministries and agencies to publish licensing as well as putting Liaison Officer (LO) in the center of the PTSP Center of BKPM.

Another breakthrough in the year 2016, BKPM gave a 3-hour Licensing Service, as part of a package of Economic Policies Vol. II, which was launched by the Government. This service was subsequently further developed, by publishing 8 product licensing, plus 1 letter booking ground (if required), i.e. the investment Licence, the tax payer ID (TAX ID), deed establishment of the company and the decison of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, company list (TDP), permit of foreign worker (IMTA), plan the use of foreign labor (RPTKA), identifier number of the manufacturer importer  (API-P), and the number of customs carriers (NIK).

In addition, the BKPM also provide Direct Construction Investment Service (KLIK) for investor/investors that its investments are in the areas of certain industries.

In fact, to make it easier for new companies who are doing construction project investment, the government launched the green line facilities to import capital goods with just takes 30 minutes. So the imported machine can be immediately used on the schedule are planned.

Not surprisingly, the value of any investment continues to rise. The 2012-2016, the value of total Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows reached USD 139.8 billion or approximately Rp 1,561.1 trillion, which is derived from the new project of Rp 1,094.2 trillion and project expansion Rp 466 trillion. Meanwhile, the Local Investment (PMDN) inflows in the same period reached Rp 772.2 trillion, which is derived from the new project of Rp 502.5 trillion and project expansion Rp 269.7 trillion.

As for the third quarter until 2017, the realization of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Indonesia reached Rp 318.5 trillion, which is derived from the new project Rp 261.4 trillion and from expansion project amounting to Rp 57.1 trillion. While the realization of investment reached PMDN Rp 194.7 trillion, which comes from new projects amounting to Rp 150 trillion and expansion project Rp 44.7 trillion.

Improvement done BPKM, making Indonesia the country fourth top investment destinations of multinational corporations, according to a survey conducted by the United Nations on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Whereas in the World Investment Report in 2017, Indonesia managed to rise four rankings sped from the previous year, after the United States ranks first in China in the second place, and India in third position.

Indonesia also reached the ranking of competitiveness to the 42 according to The 2017 IMD World Competitiveness Year Book, jump 6 level than the previous survey year 2016. The third stage of the country with the best Prospects for international business (JBIC, 2016). While based on the results of the survey, the World Economic Forum ranked Indonesia in rank 41 to Global Competitiveness Index -2015-2016 (WEF, 2016-2017).

This investment prospects of improvement are also marked Indonesia's debt rating by S&P be Investment Grade. Currently, there are four debt-rating agencies in the world was recorded already ranks Investment Grade for Indonesia, namely Investment Grade Baa3 with a projection of ' positive ' (Moody's, February 2017), Investment Grade BBB-with the projection of the ' positive ' (Japan Credit Ratings (JCR), March 2017), the Investment Grade rating of BBB-with Stable ' projection ' (Standard Poor's &, may 2017), and the Investment Grade BBB-with the projection of the ' positive ' (Fitch Ratings, July 2017).

Continuous improvement done by BPKM perceived Suhat Miyarso, Director of PT Chandra Asri. The management process changes permissions on the BKPM, making businessmen have certainty of the time, if all the requirements are already met. Said Suhat, with the online process, the document will not be lost because the stored well and easy to find.

"By having the system online and tracking system, we can immediately know if there were delays because there are terms that are not yet complete. Now, the process of filing documents online is much simpler, easier, and faster, "said Suhat.

Seung Hwa Suh, Global CEO & Vice Chairman of Hankook Tire, also agree. BKPM always give input to the Hankook Tire in each step of the decision making process of investment, so that gives confidence to make a final decision to invest in Indonesia. "Hankook Tire is eager to contribute to the economic growth of Indonesia," said Seung Hwa Suh

Over the past 50 years, the BKPM has done a variety of innovations and improvements in the various establishments to provide the best service to candidates and foreign investor in the country in Indonesia.
