Indonesia's economy grew a faster-than-expected 5.18 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, thanks to higher commodity prices and stronger consumption.
On Friday, the statistics bureau said Indonesia's gross domestic product expanded 5.18 percent in the second quarter. A Reuters poll forecast 5.00 percent.
The statistics bureau revised annual growth in the first quarter to 4.91 percent from 4.92 percent.
"Global commodity prices improved particularly in the second quarter, compared to the first," Suryamin, the bureau chief said, citing higher crude oil prices in April-June.
Also, he said second quarter agricultural production was good.
