Less Waste, More Infrastructure as Jokowi Aims for 5.6% Growth in 2018

Jakarta. President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo seeks to accelerate economic growth in 2018, with plans to increase government spending and attract more private investment to develop infrastructure across the archipelago.

The government will target a 5.6 percent increase in growth next year, up from an expected 5.1 percent this year and a recorded 5 percent in 2016.

Jokowi has asked his cabinet to consult ministerial budgets and cut superfluous expenses to increase government spending on capital expenditure.
