Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/09/2014 -- Despite a recent slowdown in economic growth, we remain sanguine on the long-term prospects of the Indonesian economy. With a positive demographic outlook that will make the country increasingly attractive in terms of manufacturing, real GDP growth should be relatively broad-based across the archipelago. With food/drink/retail sector investments likely to be more forthcoming in the coming years, dynamism in consumer-facing sectors will consequently remain buoyed to support demand growth.
