Purchasing Power in Ramadan 2020

Unlike the previous years, public expenditure during Ramadan this year tends to decrease. This is based on the Consumer Price Index which is used as a reference for calculating the inflation rate. The BPS – Statistics Indonesia recorded an inflation rate of 0.08% MoM in April 2020. This figure is lower than the previous month which reached 0.10% MoM.

Head of the BPS – Statistics Indonesia, Suhariyanto said the low inflation rates indicate two things. First, it shows a decline in purchasing power. Secondly, the low inflation rate also shows that the price of basic commodities during the fasting month and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic is still maintained, and food supply is still running smoothly during the PSBB Regulation is applied.

BPS recorded that the April 2020 inflation rate was the lowest compared to the Ramadan of the past 17 years. The influence of the COVID-19 pandemic which suppressed general purchasing power is surely one of the main factors in this condition.
