Enny Sri Hartati, Director of the Institute for Development of Economics and Finance (INDEF) said that there will be influence from the plan to enter online shopping to the source of growth.

"Online shopping adds to the volume of the economy, there are transactions, how many valid numbers baseball exists, digital integration as a survey," she said in Jakarta, Friday (18/08/2017).

However, Enny assessed the online sale of the source from the data of retail production that read down. In Bank Indonesia (BI) notes, retail sales were negative 3.0%, retail price pressures over the next three months.
