Economist at UOB Group Enrico Tanuwidjaja reviews the recently published Current Account results in the Indonesian economy.
“Indonesia’s current account posted a wider surplus amounting to USD 3.9bn (1.1% of GDP) in 2Q22, up significantly from a surplus of USD 0.4bn (0.1% of GDP) in 1Q22.”
“Indonesia also posted a balance of payment (BOP) surplus of USD 2.4bn in 2Q22, supported by a significantly larger current account surplus and a narrower capital and financial account deficit.”
