JAKARTA : Indonesia's economic growth is expected to top 5 per cent in 2022, the finance ministry's head of fiscal office said on Friday, cushioned by high exports and despite the risk of rising inflation.

Febrio Kacaribu said Indonesia's inflation level was "manageable" compared to other countries and pledged that fiscal policy would prioritise ensuring households retained purchasing power. Indonesia's consumer price index in April hit its highest point since 2017.
