    Jakarta: Bank Indonesia (BI) deputy governor Dody Budi Waluyo is optimistic that 2019's annual consumer prices index will stay at 3.5 percent plus or minus one percentage point.

    "If the government announces fuel price hikes, the decision will not change our calculations," Dody said.

    "Rising air transportation fares will affect inflation but the hikes also will not change our estimation," Dody added.

    According to the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), Indonesia recorded an annual inflation of 3.13 percent in 2018. Based on the same report, the country posted an annual core inflation of 3.17 percent last year.
