Green Economy Key to Break Free from Middle-Income Trap: Minister

Jakarta: Green economy is one of the game-changers for the nation to break free from the middle-income trap, National Development Planning (PPN) Minister, concurrently National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) Head Suharso Monoarfa stated.

During the “A Green Economy for a Net Zero Future” online event here on Wednesday, Monoarfa continued to lay emphasis on the importance of high economic growth in order to achieve that goal.

According to Monoarfa, COVID-19 and climate change had changed Indonesia. In terms of the economy, a major strategy is required to return Indonesia’s economic growth to its trajectory before COVID-19 struck. Meanwhile, in terms of sustainability, visual business-based development is no longer deemed capable of tackling current challenges.
