Indonesia Economic Outlook New Normal

After a negative growth in the second quarter of the year 2020, under which circumstances could Indonesia avoid a recession and return to a positive growth this year?  

In this Online Roundtable, experts from DZ BANK and Bank Central Asia (BCA) presented their perspective on the economic development in Indonesia and their financial instruments to support companies in these challenging times. After the presentation, there was an opportunity to ask questions and get into a discussion with the experts.
