Indonesia’s economy grew 5.44 percent year-on-year in the second quarter of this year as exports surged and commodity prices rose in global markets, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) said on Wednesday.

Head of BPS Margo Yuwono said that in the April to June period, Indonesia’s gross domestic product grew 3.72 percent quarter to quarter with the largest contribution coming from the provinces in Java, 56.55 percent of the national total.

“Development in the second quarter of this year shows that Indonesia’s economic growth is steadily increasing,” Yuwono said at a press conference.—APP
