Indonesian President Joko Widodo said on Tuesday that he wants the country’s gross domestic product to expand 5.6% next year from 5.1% government’s target of this year, Xinhua reported.  Widodo told a cabinet meeting that the goal could be reached by rising shipment of products overseas and boosting efforts to spur investment into the country. “We have set a target of the growth in 2018, we want 5.6%,” he said at the State Palace. Widodo asked authorities to find new export markets for the country’s products, and continue deregulation programs to help lure foreign capital.
