Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Bank Indonesia (BI) Governor Agus Martowardojo said Indonesia's economic growth can reach above 5.1 percent next year.

"We can reach above 5.1 percent if we get enough redemption money and repatriated assets from the tax amnesty program," Agus said here on Friday (9/16/2016).

"Repatriated assets will affect credit growth and economic growth," he continued

Previously, the government and the House of Representatives agreed on the economic growth assumption at 5.1 percent for the 2017 draft state budget.

"It is the authority of the Finance Ministry," he stated.
