Indonesia Economy -
In the last month of 2017 Indonesia posted
a USD 270 million trade deficit according to the latest data from
Statistics Indonesia (BPS). Indonesia posted a trade surplus in all
months of 2017 with the exception of July and December.
Indonesia's exports reached USD 14.79 billion in December 2017,
up 6.93% yoy from the nation's exports in the same month one
year earlier. Meanwhile, its imports reached USD 15.06 billion,
up 17.83% yoy from imports. Hence, the trade deficit in
December 2017 was caused by rapidly rising imports, boosted by
the purchase of raw materials and capital goods for local
manufacturing purposes. Meanwhile, December exports did not
live up to expectations due to a slowdown in automotive parts
and vegetable oil shipments.
