On 6 July 2023 Indonesia Investments released the June 2023 edition of its monthly report. In the report we present a number of analyses of topics (all related to the economy, politics and social matters) that were relevant in Indonesia in the month of June 2023.
The first part of the report focuses on the mining sector of Indonesia, specifically the bauxite ore export ban that was imposed in June 2023 and the role of coal in Indonesia's energy transition. Considering coal is known as a dirty fuel it more-or-less clashes with Indonesia's energy transition ambitions. However, coal remains an attractive energy source as Indonesia holds ample reserves. And so, we take a look at how coal can contribute to the energy transition that is targeted to be compleded by 2060, namely through 'clean coal technology', biomass co-firing and the early retirement of a number of coal-fired power plants.
As usual, we also present an analysis of Indonesia's economic growth by taking a detailed look at a number of macroeconomic indicators. In this analysis we focus on assessing the strength of household consumption in Indonesia. And, there certainly is some good news to share!
Another interesting topic is Indonesia's 2024 elections. We offer an update on the latest developments as - gradually - it is becoming clear what the composition of coalitions will be, and what their presidential candidates are.
Meanwhile, amid the rapidly developing digital economy, it is worth taking a look at how Indonesians adapt to digital payments such as e-wallets, Internet banking, and Bank Indonesia's QRIS payment system.
Other topics that we cover in this June 2023 edition are inflation, manufacturing, trade, and monetary policy.
