Prabowo Subianto expressed confidence in Indonesia's potential, drawing from expert opinions and key indicators. He asserted his determination to achieve this growth rate within the first two or three years of his five-year presidential term.

Gen. Prabowo Subianto highlighted key strategies to drive Indonesia's economic expansion, focusing on agriculture, food production, and the transition to biofuels.
