Widodo gets second wind for reforms

JAKARTA It is one year and seven months since Indonesian President Joko Widodo took office. The first year of his tenure was characterized by an unstable administration and unclear management, partly due to gross domestic product growth slipping below the 5% mark.

Since the start of 2016, however, Widodo has managed to shore up support for his administration, the economy has been on the up with lower oil prices helping drive down consumer prices and the rupiah has stabilized. The country's extensive infrastructure development program, for which Widodo has high hopes, is finally making progress.
