There are also signs that private consumption has started to recover. Sales of consumer durables such as car and motorcycles rebounded, with the latter jumping double-digits in the third quarter after three years of consecutive contractions. Real GDP growth is projected at 5. 1 percent for 2017, accelerating to 5. 3 percent in 2018 driven by continued strong investment growth, further recovery in consumption, and an increase in government spending. Effective government spending is also crucial to economic development. More than half of total government spending across all levels of government in Indonesia is conducted by sub-national governments, with 38 percent managed by district governments and 15 percent by provinces.

JAKARTA — Nearly two decades after anti-Chinese riots tore through this part of Indonesia’s capital, one busy road still bears the scars. Amid the clamor of heat and traffic of Glodok, Jakarta’s Chinatown, a row of shop-houses lies abandoned, an octagonal feng shui tile still attached to a bricked-up window. A nearby three-story building stands in ruins: a former furniture store destroyed during the rioting. Iskandar, 60, a street-side portrait painter who stores uses the space to store his wares.
