GOOD BUT LOWER PERFORMANCE:
WHY?
• Crisis in Europe & recession in US
• Instability in Middle East & Africa
• Slower economic growth in emerging countries esp. China & India
• Trade imbalance with declining exports (& burgeoning imports)
Global economic
uncertainty
• Overburdened airports: Jakarta’s CGK at beyond capacity past 6 years
• Poor condition of ports: Unable to keep up with economic growth
• Bad roadways, bad traffic; floods
• Poor connectivity between towns/cities/regions
• Policies & regulations deemed as hindrance to businesses
Weak infrastructure &
high logistics costs
Government initiatives
Strong domestic consumption
driven by emerging middle
class
Influx of investments
• Master Plan MP3EI (2011- 2025): Economic development
• Master Plan MP3KI (2011- 2025): Poverty reduction
• Tax incentives
• Highest contributor to economy: ≅ 2/3 of GDP
• 240 million (World’s 4th most populous nation)
• 45 million consuming class (to  to 135 million in 2030)
• Robust consumer confidence with surge in government & private sector
projects
• Second biggest contributor: ≅ 30% of GDP
• Regaining of investment grade: Fitch in Dec. 2011 & Moody’s in Jan. 2012
• AT Kearney FDICI: Ranked #9 in the world (from 19 in 2010)
• 2012 realization may top $31 billion (Rp. 300 trillion), a record
OUTLOOK FOR 2013 POSITIVE
Annual GDP growth target set at 6.8 % (BI forecast: 6.3% - 6.8%)
Domestic consumer demand 65% of GDP = less vulnerable to Europe & US drag
Fitch: Affirmed RI’s investment grade at BBB- (stable outlook); boost joining BRICS
Investment realization targeted to increase to Rp. 390.3 trillion (FDI $29 billion)
Household consumption (to  5.8 – 6.3%) & investment (to  10%) will continue to drive
growth
Govt set inflation rate assumption at 3.5% - 5.5%
Government to hold BI rate steady at 5.75% (since March 2012)
Per capita income rising & middle class growing (to expand to > ½ total population)
Oil & gas investment to increase: $26.2 billion: 274 work plans & budgets approved
Exploding gas demand = efforts to reduce exports + expand downstream capacity
Sales of capital goods, including machine tools, will rise 8% to $27 billion
RISKS & CONCERNS
Endemic
corruption/Judiciary a
problem: 118
in list of 176 countries
(Transparency International)
Rising inflation from
domestic fuel subsidies &
power tariff hike
Weak institutions &
bureaucratic
inefficiencies: 128 out of
185 globally
(World Bank’s Doing Business)
Political uncertainty:
2014 elections
Infrastructure congested
& inadequate to support
growth; respond to
natural disasters
Lack of institutions with
strong capital structure to
finance planned projects
Crisis in developed
world: Threaten exports,
foreign liquidity,
investment growth
Emerging trend of trade
deficits fueling current
account deficits & hurting
the Rupiah
Under-developed HR:
Low-skilled workforce +
Minimum pay increase
not matched with
increase in productivity
REASONS TO BE OPTIMISTIC +
OPPORTUNITIES
Master plans to guide
development & growth:
Impetus for change
Relative political &
economic stability:
Conducive to business
Strong & growing
domestic demand: Fuel
growth, limit exposure
to external shocks
Poverty reduction
means growing middle
class
Growing middle class
means better qualified
workforce & bigger
market
Positive investment
outlook thanks to strong
economic fundamentals
Abundance of fertile
land & natural
resources
Financial markets
poised for volatility:

Editor's Notes

  1. The chart shows The Conference Board’s (TCB) most recent medium- and long-term projections for trend growth in real GDP for China, broken down by contributions from labor, capital and productivity. In our baseline scenario, China will grow at an average 5.5 percent over the next six years and slow further to an average 3.7 percent from 2019-2025. While one percentage point of the slowdown will occur due to slower growth in capital formation, the bulk of the slowdown will emanate from reduced total factor productivity, or said another way, the economy’s overall efficiency. The projection is based on assumptions about the reasonable utilization of China’s factor endowments; it does not factor in potential shocks or innovation influences that could see growth go down or up, respectively. Two important observations jump out from our growth estimates. The first, and most obvious, is that our medium-term projection is much lower than many current forecasts. However, accepting a slowing growth rate is a major precondition for moving China onto a more sustainable growth path. Therefore, we do not consider our projection “bearish,” per se. Rather how China slows, and how far, depends largely on the policy set introduced by China’s leadership. The second observation to note is that China has not yet reached a “new normal” for growth. That phrase is generally used to imply that growth has experienced a one-off downshift, from the average 10 percent of the past twenty years, to 7 or 8 percent for the foreseeable future. In contrast, TCB expects an ongoing, gradual deceleration in growth over the next decade, as the economy matures and transitions to services growth that is by nature less productive than manufacturing. The improvement in the high-frequency data over the last two months may obfuscate the underlying trends unfolding in the economy. First, a large portion of export demand has simply vanished. Export growth averaged 23 percent over the past 10 years. This year it has averaged 8.3 percent and is unlikely to rebound to previous rates, as advanced economies continue to see slower growth, and as China’s manufacturing competitiveness is challenged by rising costs and increasing competition. Secondly, returns to capital have slowed to a pace more indicative of an advanced economy than an emerging market. TCB estimates that China’s marginal product of capital has declined rapidly in recent years, and is much lower than other economies at its development level. From a structural standpoint, China’s economy is still under-invested, but the pace of investment will have to slow. This dynamic has been borne out in 2012, as fixed asset investment in the manufacturing sector has slowed to 23.1 percent y-o-y, from a 31.9 percent average over the previous 8 years.Slower growth need not be alarming, nor necessarily painful – but this all depends on the policy response of China’s new leadership. The first choice China faces is to rationalize inefficient formal credit markets and potentially unstable informal credit markets. Weaning the economy off its current leverage addiction is a necessary step – with corporate debt close to 130 percent of GDP and overall government debt near 70 percent (based on conservative estimates) – toward more sustainable growth. The “speed limit” of China’s economy is decelerating, and the road ahead is windy. History indicates that it is better to ride the brake and maintain control. © 2012 by The Conference Board, Inc.
