Religions: Muslim 87.2%, Christian 7%, Roman Catholic 2.9%, Hindu 1.7%, other 0.9% (includes Buddhist and Confucian), unspecified 0.4% (2010 est.). Location: Southeastern Asia, archipelago between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. Government: Republic. Chief of state and head of government: President Joko Widodo (since Oct. 20, 2014). Economy: Indonesia has seen a slowdown in growth since 2012, mostly due to the end of the commodities export boom. During the global financial crisis, Indonesia outperformed its regional neighbors and joined China and India as the only G20 members posting growth. The government has promoted fiscally conservative policies, resulting in a debtto-GDP ratio of less than 25% and historically low rates of inflation. Fitch and Moody's upgraded Indonesia's credit rating to investment grade in December 2011. Indonesia still struggles with poverty and unemployment, inadequate infrastructure, corruption, a complex regulatory environment, a current account deficit, and unequal resource distribution among regions. President Joko Widodo - elected in July 2014 - has emphasized maritime and other infrastructure development, and especially increased electric power capacity, since taking office. Fuel subsidies were almost completely removed in early 2015, a move which could help the government increase spending on its development priorities. Indonesia, with the nine other ASEAN members, will continue to move toward participation in the ASEAN Economic Community, though full implementation of economic integration will not be completed until the end of 2015. GDP per capita:  $10,600 (2014 est.); inflation: 6.4% (2014 est.); unemployment: 6.1% (2014 est.). Currency: Indonesian rupiah (IDR): 14,445 rupiahs equal 1U.S. dollar (Sept. 16, 2015). Exports: $175.3 billion (2014 est.): Palm oil, oil and gas, ores and slags, electrical appliances, plywood, textiles, rubber. Imports: $168.4 billion (2014 est.): Machinery and equipment, electronic equipment, chemicals, fuels, foodstuffs. Major crops/agricultural products: Rubber and similar products, palm oil, poultry, beef, forest products, shrimp, cocoa, coffee, medicinal herbs, essential oil, fish and its similar products, and spices. Agriculture: 14.2% of GDP and 38.9% of the labor force. Internet: Code: .id. 42.4 million users. Source: CIA World Factbook October 2015 / World Grain /
