Maluku and Papua Economic Growth Skyrockets, Reaching 13 Percent – Indonesia’s economic growth succeeded to break through the 5.44 percent year on year (YoY) rate in the second quarter of 2022. This achievement was supported by positive economic growth in all regions.

A Head of the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) Margo Yuwono said that the spatial structure of the Indonesian economy in the second quarter of 2022 was still led by the island of Java.

“With a contribution to gross domestic growth (GDP) of 56.55 percent, Java Island grew by 5.66 percent,” he said in a teleconference session, Friday (5/8/2022).

Although the contribution to GDP was the smallest at 2.51 percent, the economy in Maluku and Papua actually grew the highest to double digits.

“The Maluku and Papua Island groups again recorded the highest (YoY) growth of 13.01 percent,” added Margo.

When broken down according to each region, the Eastern Indonesia region holds major control in economic growth in the second quarter of 2022.

Sulawesi Island, which contributed 7.09 percent to GDP, succeeded in growing 6.47 percent, the second highest after Maluku and Papua.

Then, Sumatra Island with a GDP contribution of 22.03 percent in the second quarter of 2022 recorded economic growth below the national average, which was 4.95 percent.

Also Kalimantan with a contribution to GDP of 9.09 percent only grew 4.25 percent. The lowest economic growth in the second quarter of 2022 was in the islands of Bali and Nusa Tenggara, which contributed to GDP of 2.73 percent and only touched 3.94 percent.

The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) reported that Indonesia’s economic growth in the second quarter of 2022 reached 5.44 percent year on year (YoY) compared to the previous first quarter of 2021.

“Indonesia’s economic growth in the second quarter of 2022 when compared to the first quarter of 2022 grew 3.72 percent. When compared to the second quarter of 2021, it grew 5.44 percent,” said BPS Head Margo Yuwono in a teleconference session, Friday (5/8/2022) .

Cumulatively, Margo said, the Indonesian economy throughout the first semester of 2022 succeeded in growing 5.23 percent compared to the first semester of 2021.

Referring to the record of domestic events, this achievement was achieved due to higher mobility compared to the previous periods.

“For mobility, there is an increase in passengers for all modes of transportation. The previous BPS release said, during Q2, transportation passengers grew very significantly, both q2q and YoY,” he added.
