JAKARTA -- Indonesia's economy returned to growth in 2021, rebounding from its first contraction in two decades the year before as coronavirus-induced restrictions eased and business got back into gear.

The gross domestic product of Southeast Asia's largest economy climbed 3.69% from a year earlier, government data showed on Monday, bouncing back from a 2.07% contraction in 2020. The finance ministry had previously forecast growth at 3.7%.
