Economies in Transition Indonesia
Economies in Transition - Indonesia
June 12, 2020

Discover the opportunities Indonesia presents for business leaders, including:

  • The stabilisation of Indonesia's financial system. Bank Indonesia has injected liquidity in the foreign exchange and bond markets, and Banks have provided credit relief to nearly a million customers.
  • Bonds as an alternative investment. Bonds have remained stable, with a relatively minor upward move in yields as the finance ministry has been very transparent about their bond issuing plans due to additional funding requirements. The government's successful issue of global bonds, including extending the maturity up to 50 years, has also contributed to the strengthening of the Rupiah.
  • Digital growth. Businesses are capitalising on the strong tech infrastructure that Indonesia has built, continuing and even strengthening operations, despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic.
  • Secure your cash by preventing fraud risks through adoption of digital solutions
