Manufacturing sector will contribute around 22-24 percent to Indonesia's economic growth next year. 

Meanwhile, agriculture sector will contribute around 20 percent and trade sector will contribute around 22 percent.

"The three sectors will contribute around 65-70 percent," he said here on Monday (9/12/2016).

He explained rising commodity prices will boost agriculture sector. Palm oil prices have increased by 15-20 percent since January.

In the other hand, manufacturing and trade sector will depend on the stability of rupiah.

"We hope the currency can be maintained in the second semester of 2016 and 2017," he concluded.
