Indonesia’s economic outlook amid ongoing global instability was central to an Asia House briefing with Indonesia’s Finance Minister Sir Mulyani in Washington DC.
Speaking in the sidelines of the IMF and G20 Finance Ministers Meetings, Mulyani briefed Asia House Corporate Members on the forces shaping Indonesia’s economy, its efforts to tackle climate change, and the key challenges facing global policymakers.
The role of the G20 in addressing global crises, and Indonesia’s hopes for the G20 Summit in Bali next month, were also discussed in the off-the-record briefing, chaired by Asia House Chief Executive Michael Lawrence.
Members of Asia House’s global network joined the discussion in Washington DC, with a range of questions being put to the Minister.
Mulyani was asked about the impact of the energy crisis on global efforts to tackle climate change; how Indonesia is planning to finance its energy transition; and initiatives to incentivise green investments. Mulyani was also asked about the outlook for emerging markets amid a strengthening US dollar; the robustness of Indonesia’s economy; and the political outlook in the country.
The briefing, convened on 11 October, gave Asia House Corporate Members a unique opportunity to engage with a key figure shaping financial policy in Southeast Asia’s biggest economy.
