A blooming economy fuelled by rising middle-class

Indonesia is the fastest growing economy in the ASEAN region. During the global financial crisis in 2008, Indonesia outperformed its regional neighbours and joined China and India as the only G20 members posting growth in 2009. Its expanding middle-class spurs the country's strong domestic consumption and contributes to the growth of businesses across sectors.

As a country gifted with rich and diversified natural resources, commodities-exports have also been an engine of growth for years. Major exports include coal, palm oil, petroleum oil and gas, mineral fuels. Indonesia counts China, Japan, the United States, Singapore, Malaysia and Korea as its main trading partners.

Indonesia is part of the ASEAN Exchanges – a collaboration among Bursa Malaysia, Hanoi Stock Exchange, Hochiminh Stock Exchange, Indonesia Stock Exchange, The Philippine Stock Exchange Inc, Singapore Exchange and The Stock Exchange of Thailand. The group was established to provide an interlinked ASEAN capital market via greater cross-border investments, mobilisation of intra-ASEAN funds and trading of equity markets.
