Commentary on the competitive conditions of the industry

The Indonesian economy registered its fastest quarterly growth in four and a half years with its gross domestic product increasing 5.27%1 y-oy in the second quarter of 2018, beating its first quarter's growth and consensus estimates. This was mainly driven by robust consumption during the Muslim fasting month. The Indonesian Rupiah has continued to face selling pressures amidst rising US interest rates and fears of market contagion from Turkey and Argentina. To counter the Rupiah depreciation, Bank Indonesia has intervened in the foreign exchange markets, raised import taxes and also increased interest rates several times during the year, with the latest on 27 September 2018, bringing interest rate to 5.75%2. President Joko Widodo has announced Indonesia's growth forecast for 2019 to be 5.3%3, driven by stronger domestic consumption, investment and exports, and supported by a stronger spending push planned for 2019.

Private healthcare demand will continue to see support from the growing nationwide adoption of the national health insurance scheme and healthcare spending in Indonesia has been projected to rise to Rp1,224 trillion by 20274. First REIT continues to be well-positioned to benefit from this trend with its right of first refusal to Lippo Karawaci's healthy pipeline of hospitals in Indonesia.

Subject to the completion of the proposed acquisition of Bowsprit by OUELH from Lippo Karawaci, First REIT will also have access to OUELH's growing portfolio of healthcare and/or healthcare-related assets across Pan- Asia.
