Indonesia central bank says indicators show improvement in economy in third quarter By Reuters



JAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesia’s economic indicators, including results of business and banking surveys, showed an improvement in activity at the start of the third quarter of this year, Bank Indonesia (BI) governor told reporters on Friday.

Perry Warjiyo said the factory sector will likely remain “expansive” in the July-September quarter, though the growth rate may not be as high as in the first half “as the effect of trade war hits exports and the manufacturing industry”.

BI cut its benchmark interest rate on Thursday to lift sluggish economic growth, while predicting that GDP will expand at the same pace in the second quarter as the 5.1% rate in the first three months of the year.
