The ministry needed to set an economic target in designing the policy to stimulate growth, he said during a video conference on June 9. "In 2022 or 2023, we should at least return to 5 percent growth.” 

The pandemic has battered the Indonesian economy, with growth slowing down to 2.97 percent in the first quarter of 2020.

During the same period last year, the Indonesian economy grew 5.07 while in the fourth quarter, it grew 4.97 percent.

Raden said he expected the Indonesian economy to have hit the negative zone in the second quarter this year as pressure from the pandemic built up.
