Commentary on the competitive conditions of the industry

Following a spike in COVID-19 cases that has overwhelmed Indonesia’s medical system, the government has downgraded its gross domestic product ("GDP") growth forecast to 3.7% to 4.5%, from 4.5% to 5.3% after reinstating stringent emergency public activity restrictions that cover most of the country. On a quarter-on-quarter basis, GDP is expected to hit 6.3% and 5.5% in the third and fourth quarters respectively. Bank Indonesia has kept its key interest rate at a record low of 3.5% since February and its focus for the rest of the year is on keeping rates low and liquidity flush to support the economy, and maintaining a stable exchange rate.1 The government’s health budget for 2021 has increased to Rp193.9 trillion (US$13.4 billion) as the number of cases continue to rise. The budgeted funds are set aside for diagnostics, testing and tracing, health equipment, COVID-19 hospital treatment and financial incentive for healthcare workers. It has also procured more than 53.9 million doses of vaccines and aims to increase the vaccine rollout to 2 million doses per day as soon as possible, and eventually to 3 million doses per day by October.2 First REIT’s Indonesia hospitals operated by Siloam have aided the government through the provision of swab tests, rapid tests and antibody test services, as well as providing healthcare professionals to assist with the nation’s vaccination programme.
