Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/16/2013 -- BMI View: Indonesia Remains An Outperformer
We have modified our outlook for the Indonesian economy in 2012 and 2013. We have raised our growth estimate for 2012 on the strength of better-than-expected data, but reduced the forecast for 2013 because we see hints of overheating, so expect a more restrictive monetary policy. We now see growth of 6.0% in 2012, easing back to 5.6% in 2013. It has to be noted however that in relative terms Indonesia remains a regional outperformer, so even taking into account these adjustments, the macroeconomy is supportive of the ports and shipping industry.
The growth outlook for Indonesia's freight sector is encouraging, particularly because there are signs that one of its key problems, an infrastructure investment deficit, is beginning to be tackled. Capacity problems remain an issue, but new investment projects in ports, airports, road, and rail are being launched. The last quarter has seen a cluster of announcements on this front, including inward investment from Japan and Russian interest in railway development.
