JAKARTA: Indonesia has revised down its 2021 gross domestic product forecast to 3.7per cent to 4.5per cent due to new coronavirus restrictions imposed to curb days of record infections, Chief Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto said on Tuesday.

The country had previously expected GDP to grow between 4.5per cent to 5.3per cent. Indonesia's economy contracted last year for the first time in nearly two decades.
