The Indonesian government forecasts that the country’s economic growth in 2013 may reach between 6.7 and 7.4 percent, mainly driven by growing investment and an expanding budget for infrastructure.

Coordinating Economic Minister Hatta Rajasa said on the draft of the 2013 state budget, which is currently under discussion, the government had boosted its expenditure budget to IDR541 trillion (USD59.14 billion), a 6-percent increase from IDR510 trillion in the 2012 state budget.
