On Wednesday 6 April 2022 Indonesia Investments released the March 2022 edition of its monthly report. This report discusses key economic, political and social developments that occurred in Indonesia in the month of March 2022.
What do we discuss in the March 2022 edition? A range of topics, actually. For instance, the impact of Ramadan. This year the Ramadan month (the fasting month for the Muslim community) will cover almost the whole month of April. As is widely known, demand for a wide range of food and drink products rises amid the Ramadan. And considering there already exists the threat of high inflation due to high energy prices (including in the form of imported inflation) and still disrupted logistics and supply chains (as a consequence of the COVID-19 crisis), it is important for the government to keep food prices under control.
Another article discusses Indonesia's economic indicators in Q1-2022 (which look quite positive) and whether COVID-19 still forms a threat to public health. If not, then why are there still restrictions in effect?
Other topics that are discussed include the initial public offering (IPO) of GoTo Gojek Tokopedia on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), Indonesia's huge (yet untapped) potential for wind energy, the Indonesia-Bangladesh trade deal, and manufacturing activity.
