27 countries apply for IMF financial assistance, is Indonesia one of them?


Jakarta, IO – Bank Indonesia (BI) deputy governor Destry Damayanti divulged that Indonesia’s economy is still safe and sound, as indicated by GDP growth in Q2-2022 which hit above 5 percent.

Destry said the central bank predicts full year growth for 2022 to be in the range of 4.5-5.3 percent. “There are 27 countries that have applied for financial assistance from the IMF. Indonesia, so far, is still doing well,” Destry said on Saturday (22/10).

He explained Indonesia’s economic growth is still driven by consumption, investment and exports.
