JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's central bank maintains its forecast for 2017 economic growth at 5.2-5.4 percent, its deputy governor told reporters on Friday after the statistics bureau released data for growth in the first quarter.
The 5.01 percent annual growth in January-March was better than Bank Indonesia (BI) had expected, Mirza Adityaswara said.
The next central bank policy meeting is set for May 17-18.
