  • 1. Proper utilization of natural resources as well as their efficient processing
  • 2. The increase of effective and professional human resources
  • 3. Stronger export and import levels in various sectors
  • 4. A surplus trade balance

These are the primary factors for Indonesia to rise from its economic downturn. The government is also taking plans to accelerate the national economic recovery amidst the potential risks of inflation going forward by strengthening collaboration and policy coordination to maintain macro-economy stability and encourage the momentum of economic revival.

The good performance of the state budget shows the resilience of the Indonesian economy amidst global pressures. The state budgets will remain the main instrument in supporting Indonesia’s economic recovery and transformation.

Although the country’s economy is getting better, this does not mean that Indonesia remains calm and does not do anything. Instead, the government must plan for the future and how to achieve Indonesia Maju 2045 program and a stable global economy in the top 5 by 2030. Of course, this is not the task of the government alone but also the task for all Indonesians to continue to unite to achieve a brighter Indonesia.
