RI sets 2015 growth target of 5.5–6.3%

Indonesia: National Development Planning Minister Armida S.Alisjahbana says the government has set an economic growth target of between 5.5 and 6.3 percent in the 2015 Government Work Plan (RKP).

“The development target we want to achieve by the end of 2015 is economic growth of 5.5–6.3 percent,” she said during the opening of the 2014 National Development Planning Conference (Musrenbangnas) in Jakarta on Wednesday as quoted by Antara news agency.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Vice President Boediono, United Indonesia Cabinet II ministers, governors and heads of regencies and municipalities across Indonesia attended the conference.

Armida said other development targets included an inflation rate within a range of 4.5 percent plus or minus one percent, a 9 – 10 percent decline in the poverty rate and an unemployment level between 5.7 and 5.9 percent.

She said continued reforms for just economic development acceleration had been chosen as the theme of this year’s conference and this target would be achieved through inclusive development and improved justice in all aspects of life for all Indonesians.

“Ongoing reforms need to be continued in all aspects, including politics, law and security, economy and people’s prosperity, which will be followed by comprehensive economic development accelerations in all fields by highlighting achievements in competitiveness,” said Armida.

She added that the compiling of the RKP 2015 referred to the National Middle-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) for 2015-2019.

The RPJMN was composed by considering the evaluation results of the previous RPJMN and mid-term strategic issues and themes that had been outlined by the National Long Term Development Plan (RPJPN) 2005-2025.

“The theme for the RPJMN 2015-2019 is consolidating development comprehensively by highlighting the development of economic competitiveness based on the superiority on natural resources, human resources and science and technology capacity,” said Armida.
