JAKARTA -- Indonesia's economic growth slowed for the third quarter of this year as consumption failed to pick up despite the country hosting a major sports event during the period.

Badan Pusat Statistik, the country's central statistics agency, on Monday said gross domestic product had grown by an inflation-adjusted 5.17% on an annual basis in the three months to September, slower than in the second quarter when it clocked 5.27% growth, the fastest pace since the fourth quarter of 2013.
