INDUSTRY.co.id - Bandung - National Figures Rizal Ramli analyzes Indonesia's 2018 growth is stagnant at five percent. So is the economic growth in 2019.

According to Rizal, there is still an imbalance in lending. Where, large industries still dominate the credit channeled by the government.

The founder thinks Econit thinks it is a glass in which big business and State-Owned Enterprises (BUMNs) are in a glass cup getting credit, then medium business is just in the neck of the glass, and the majority of people are at the bottom of the glass.

"Our problem, like this is the economic structure in Indonesia. As much as 83 percent of credit only flows to big business, the remaining 17 percent to medium business and people. Middle entrepreneurs only a little, the remaining 60 million small businesses with married, Muslims under. I apologize," said Rizal in Bandung (14/4/2018).

The former United Nations Economic Adviser (UN) is also critical of government policies that are considered not pro-people. According to him, it causes the economic structure of Indonesia is very unhealthy.

"The condition is created because, the economic ministers are neo-liberalist. So do not expect the life of the people of Indonesia will be more prosperous," said Rizal Ramli.

Rizal also stressed that the first factor of stagnant economic growth is the corrupt practice that has reached the systemic level. Dozens of regional heads who became suspects of corruption clearly obstruct economic activity.

"The solution is simple; the state must finance the party, as in Europe and Australia. So the party can focus to educate qualified cadres," explained Rizal Ramli.

The second factor is less resilient, innovative and bold. He said, Indonesia must learn from the famous Vietnamese tenacious and hardworking. Because, in fact the economic growth of the country that once managed to drive the US soldiers managed to surpass Indonesia.

While the third factor, according to this national figure, since the era of President Soeharto's economic system adopted by Indonesia is a system of neoliberal ala World Bank. In fact, there are alternative systems available, as is done by China and Vietnam.

"I believe it can grow 10 percent annually. The key is simple, point me (Rizal Ramli) so President. So aja kok bother," concluded Rizal Ramli.
