Indonesia economic growth slows to 6%

  • Indonesia's economy grew at 6 percent in the first three months of the year, its slowest pace in more than two years.

    The economy grew by 6.1 percent in the same period last year.

    According to figures released on Monday, expansion slowed on the back of a decrease in exports.

    Indonesia, the biggest economy in South East Asia, is the largest producer of palm oil and also exports rubber, tin and coal.

    The Indonesian government has set a 2013 growth target of 6.8 percent.
