JAKARTA, May 7 (Reuters) - Indonesia’s economy is expected to grow 4.6% this year, the country’s central bank governor told a virtual conference on Friday.
This is in the upper end of Bank Indonesia’s initial economic growth forecast range of 4.1%-5.1% and a recovery from the 2.1% decline seen last year.
“We are optimistic that our economy will improve... The export sectors, I think will grow, alongside investments in other sectors,” governor Perry Warjiyo said. (Reporting by Tabita Diela; Writing by Fathin Ungku; Editing by Toby Chopra)
