The Dutch began to colonize Indonesia in the early 17th century; Japan occupied the islands from 1942 to 1945. Indonesia declared its independence shortly before Japan's surrender, but it required four years of sometimes brutal fighting, intermittent negotiations, and UN mediation before the Netherlands agreed to transfer sovereignty in 1949. A period of sometimes unruly parliamentary democracy ended in 1957 when President SOEKARNO declared martial law and instituted "Guided Democracy." After an abortive coup in 1965 by alleged communist sympathizers, SOEKARNO was gradually eased from power. From 1967 until 1998, President SUHARTO ruled Indonesia with his "New Order" government. After street protests toppled SUHARTO in 1998, free and fair legislative elections took place in 1999. Indonesia is now the world's third most populous democracy, the world's largest archipelagic state, and the world's largest Muslim-majority nation. Current issues include: alleviating poverty, improving education, preventing terrorism, consolidating democracy after four decades of authoritarianism, implementing economic and financial reforms, stemming corruption, reforming the criminal justice system, addressing climate change, and controlling infectious diseases, particularly those of global and regional importance. In 2005, Indonesia reached a historic peace agreement with armed separatists in Aceh, which led to democratic elections in Aceh in December 2006. Indonesia continues to face low intensity armed resistance in Papua by the separatist Free Papua Movement.
Economic growth remains robust and is projected to edge higher in 2018 and 2019. Stronger consumer confidence and real income growth will lift private consumption. Infrastructure investment will remain high. Improvements in licensing and transport connectivity will support private investment and export performance. Inflation has been subdued, but the effects of higher commodity prices and currency depreciation will generate some upward pressure.
Bank Indonesia raised interest rates in May to contain exchange rate pressure. Some further tightening is assumed over the projection horizon as US interest rates rise. A steeper path may be needed if capital outflows persist. The budget deficit is projected to narrow slightly, which is prudent given rising uncertainty. Continued reforms to the tax administration and strengthened compliance will provide the means for higher infrastructure and social spending that promote inclusive growth. Reducing structural and administrative bottlenecks and fighting corruption remain crucial to strengthen growth.
