The East Asian Bureau of Economic Research is a forum for high-quality economic research focussing on issues facing the economies of East Asia. It comprises representatives from Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Australia. The rapid development of the East Asian economies, the growth of intra-regional trade, financial and other economic interaction, and East Asia's new role in the global economy all underline the need for access to a vastly increased range of quality economic analysis on East Asia.

Despite major domestic and external challenges, Indonesia is expected to grow at around 5 per cent again this year — much like last year — and only slightly below the official estimate of 5.3 per cent but much lower than the 7 per cent the new government had targeted. Compared to continued downward global growth, including that of China and its ASEAN neighbours, Indonesia’s stable growth looks quite respectable.
