Indonesia’s Islamic financing to expand by 10% -12% in 2024: deputy gov

Indonesia’s sharia economy and finance maintained positive growth in 2023. 

Islamic financing disbursed by sharia banks in Indonesia is expected to grow between 10% to 12% in 2024 compared to a year ago, a central bank official said.

Speaking at the launch of the Indonesia Sharia Economic and Financial Review (KEKSI) 2023, Bank Indonesia (BI) deputy governor Juda Agung shared that Indonesia’s sharia economy and finance maintained positive growth in 2023. Key sectors include the Halal Value Chain (HVC), which posted 3.93% growth.

Major HVC sectors supported almost 23% of the national economy, the deputy governor added.

This enabled Indonesia to break into the top three of the State of the Global Islamic Economy (SGIE) rankings.

Deputy Governor Juda Agung also restated Bank Indonesia's commitment to development of the sharia economy and finance to support economic growth, with one program aimed at strengthening commercial finance and Islamic finance.
