The external factor, global economic uncertainty is increasingly pressuring Indonesia. Despite strong domestic economic fundamentals, efforts to boost Indonesia's economy will be heavier this year. External factors, among others, the increasing of USA-China trade wars, and China's economic growth which is expected to weaken to 6.5 percent this year, India and European Union trade barriers, as well as the hike of world crude oil prices. The influence of external factors, among others, is reflected in the rupiah exchange rate against the US dollar and the Composite Stock Price Index. Director of Center for Reform on Economic, Muhamad Faisal, told Kompas yesterday (28/6) that the hike of world crude oil prices, trade barriers, and commodity price’s uncertainty make Indonesia's trade balance deficit. The hike of US central bank , the Fed interest rate which responded by Bank Indonesia by raising the benchmark interest rate will raise the credit rate. If lending rates rise, the real sector will be heavier in driving the domestic economy. From that indicator alone, it is difficult for Indonesia to develop its economic growth. Chief economist of PT Bank Tabungan Negara (Persero), Winang Budoyo, said that currently Bank Indonesia is predicted to prioritize rupiah stability rather than economic growth.
