INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno feels optimistic that the economy in Jakarta in 2018 will grow above six percent.

"We got the latest data input that the economy in Jakarta showed a 'rebound' to enter the year 2018 is optimistic to see the economic growth of Jakarta above six percent," said Sandiaga at City Hall, Jakarta, Monday (18/12/2017).

The growth of employment is good and this is contributed by the activities of micro, small and medium enterprises (UMKM) 'grassroots' economic activity of beginner entrepreneurship activities that can create economic movement and job creation, he said.

"So we continue to monitor and on that side, we expect also an increasing index in this job growth, will be followed by a decrease in poverty and a decrease in unemployment," said Sandiaga.

He expects Jakarta to grow steadily in 2018 and encouraged all companies, especially the middle and large who delayed their investment because of concerns about "wait and see" in the political year to focus on investing.

"Because it has been proven political year or political activity does not have a negative impact on business growth," said Vice Governor.

This is evident in the period of two months after the inauguration of Anies - Sandi as Governor and Vice Governor of DKI Jakarta, the composite stock price index or JCI in Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) showed very good performance, he said.

"And as we predicted early after yesterday's election that the index would break the psychological 6100, Alhamdulillah can be achieved this shows that the investment community especially in the capital market sees solid economic growth both in Indonesia in general and Jakarta specifically," said Sandiaga.
