For Developing Countries, Indonesia boost economic activity by making the substitution of imports of goods intermediation to increase production for domestic consumption and export needs. Policy of import substitution is to export very well done, because it can provide economic growth and improvement of production quality. Macro sector developments that had improved and because of the government's strategy to rank, so in May 2006 has been improved again. The encouraging thing has enabled the further decline in interest rates, and stimulate the capital market so that the process of economic recovery is gaining momentum back in the year 2011. With these positive developments and attention to economic fundamentals, especially the level of macro-economic indicators are getting stronger.

Improvement in macroeconomic indicators, may not be an exaggeration to say the cabinet economic team's greatest achievement in recent years, is the government's success in restoring macroeconomic stability throughout 2008 recent decline further, as JCI end of 2007 was 2745.83 down to 1355.410 in end of 2008. The improvement in the macro sector is however not necessarily directly followed by the improvement in the real sector, improvement of various financial indicators such as the Composite Stock price Index, the rupiah, interest rates and inflation.
