Today the central bank (Bank Indonesia/BI) will release the country’s economy growth for the first quarter (Q1) of this year. The Government of Indonesia has set 5.1% economic growth target for Q1 on the back of improving export and import performances. Last year, the economic growth was led by the consumption, but this year export and import might lead. Other than GDP, market participants will likely respond movements in the commodities market. The reference price of Indonesian thermal coal for May 2017, for example, is set at US$83.81/ton, jumped by 63.69% from May 2016 despite recent corrections in the world market.To subscribe please click here
