Five years later and another presidential election is again due in Indonesia with the incumbent Jokowi facing off in a re-run against Prabowo. However, whoever wins this race would have a formidable task ahead of him to continue to drive the country’s economic development forward.

Challenges that the winner could face include ensuring the IDR stability, addressing the twin deficit issues, driving infrastructure development and strengthening investment growth.

For this talk, Alan Lau, Economist at OCBC Bank, will cover in detail such challenges and his expectations on future policies that could be implemented.
