Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesia is continuing to grow strongly and resiliently amid global turmoil caused by the Russia-Ukraine war and commodity price volatility, among other factors, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said on Thursday.

She highlighted that Indonesia's economy has recorded a growth rate of 5 percent over the last eight quarters. This growth figure aligns with Indonesia's vision for Golden Indonesia 2045.

“We continue to move forward to achieve all development targets. We also have a goal to continue to be part of the global community, including by voicing (calls for) world peace and order," she remarked at the 2023 Indonesia-Europe Investment Summit in Jakarta.

Mulyani mentioned that to realize the Golden Indonesia goal, the government is focusing on developing human resources, enhancing productivity, and fostering innovations.

These three aspects can be pursued as long as fiscal health remains robust, she added.

Furthermore, challenges such as the rapid progress in technology, the performance of the manufacturing sector, and the transformation of natural resources need to be considered, she added.

She said that Indonesia is striving to generate more added value from its natural resources. However, achieving this goal requires investment in downstreaming, infrastructure, and energy, all of which must be environmentally friendly.

She urged all countries to maintain unity to achieve common goals based on just and prosperous solidarity, especially in the midst of global uncertainty and shocks.

“Indonesia is not a divided country. I hope this spirit is also reflected at the global level because this world should be managed and maintained with the same spirit," Mulyani emphasized.
