Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani Indrawati thought that a deficit totaling Rp325.936 billion or 2.19 percent in the 2018 State Budget Bill, demonstrates an intention to create a healthier State Budget and to run the functions of allocation and distribution stabilization.
The decrease in this budget deficit (compared to the figure in 2017 which was 2.67 percent, and in 2016 which was 2.49 percent), the Minister added, also shows the efforts to solve debt problems and primary balance so they will not burden the State Budget.“With a lower deficit, the concern of debt can be solved. However, the Government cannot just stop obtaining debt suddenly. Primary balance is still positive but it decreased by half compared to 2017,” Sri Mulyani said in a press statement, at the Ministry of Finance, Jakarta, on Monday (21/8) afternoon.
