Indonesia Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability PEFA assessment report 2017 PEFA Report
Indonesia has experienced strong
economic growth and steady poverty reduction over the past
decade,but the end of the commodity boom, accompanied by
slowing poverty reduction and rising inequality, has put
pressure on the country’s overall economic development.
Indonesia’s average annual growth rate was 5.6 percent
in the period 2001-12, equivalent to a GDP per capita of
about US 3,500 dollars. The national poverty rate was halved
to 11.2 percent in the period from 1999 to 2015, largely
through sustained growth and job creation. However, the
decline in commodity prices and demand slowed growth to 4.8
percent in 2015 and 5.1 percent in 2016. The pace of poverty
reduction also began to stagnate around this time, with a
near zero decline in 2015, accompanied by rising inequality,
from 30 points in 2000 to 41 points by 2014, as measured by
the Gini coefficient.
