Indonesian government expects 2013 growth of up to 7.2pc

The Indonesian government expects the country’s economic growth to rise next year due to investment. The growth would be the fastest since 1996, before the Asian financial crisis, however pundits have said the target growth is too optimistic given the ongoing global economic crisis.

The government and the House of Representatives agreed on Monday to target economic growth of between 6.8 percent and 7.2 percent next year, according to the proposed 2013 state budget.
