ABSTRACT
The Indonesian finance ministry is expected to present its draft budget for 2005 to parliament in May 2004 amid a growing debate over belt-tightening fiscal measures. Indonesia has won much foreign praise for its fiscal consolidation of recent years. On May 12, 2004 ratings agency Standard & Poor's Corp. revised its outlook on Indonesian sovereign debt to positive from stable due to the economy's continued progress. The government aims to reduce its deficit to 1.2% of GDP this year from an estimated 1.9% in 2003.
