JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The Indonesian government is eyeing an economic recovery in 2022 or 2023 that restores growth rates to levels before the Covid-19 pandemic.

The announcement was made by the Indonesian Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs on June 9.

The Special Advisor to the Coordinating Economic Minister, Raden Pardede, expects the economy to rebound to around 5 percent in 2023.

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.
