Tsunami Impact on Indonesia

Economist Intelligence Unit [EIU] has release a report titled "Asia's tsunami: the impact" regarding the impact on the countries that hit by Tsunami.

Go here for the press release: EIU Press Relase [12 Jan 2005]

The key findings on Indonesia include:
Indonesia's economy will be less affected, with 2005 growth slipping from a forecast 5.7% previously to 5.4% now.
The key challenge for Indonesia could be on the political front: dealing swiftly and efficiently with the disaster will be an important test for the new president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.Some form of debt relief will probably be part of the humanitarian response to the disaster. Indonesia could save as much as US$3.5bn in debt–service in 2005.
