Despite the disruptions it entails, COVID-19 has brought about a great opportunity for reforms in many sectors. However, Indonesia seems to be slow in adapting to these changes. The manufacturing sector may have positive expansion since October 2020, but Indonesia’s economy should not rely only on that sector alone to reach a 4.5 percent growth at the end of 2021 and above 5.0 percent in 2022 as planned. Indonesia also witnessed several political dynamics such as the launch of a sovereign wealth fund and changes in the cabinet’s nomenclature that raised many questions.
How is the economic and political landscape look like in the first two quarters of 2021? Has Indonesia been performing well in mitigating the challenges posed by the COVID-19 and political dynamics? What can we expect in the upcoming quarters?
Against this backdrop, FPCI will convene a virtual public discussion “Indonesia’s 6-Month Economic and Political Review 2021” on Monday, 28 June 2021 at 14.00-15.30 WIB. This forum is moderated by Donny Agustiady, Director of PwC Indonesia, and hosted by Dr. Dino Patti Djalal, Founder and Chairman of Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia. The forum invites the following panelists:
- Bambang Harymurti, Commissioner of PT Tempo Inti Media Tbk.
- Abdoulaye Sy, Senior Economist of World Bank Indonesia
- Andry Asmoro, Chief Economist of PT Bank Mandiri Tbk.
- Yongky Susilo, Board of Experts of Indonesian Shopping Center Tenants Association (HIPPINDO)
