Indonesia is a middle power in Asia.
Indonesia’s overall score declined by 0.7 points compared to 2019. The country is one of eighteen in the region to trend downward in 2020, largely due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.
In 2020, Indonesia saw its greatest improvement in its economic relationships, where it moved up one place. This change primarily reflected the ratification of the Indonesia–Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. However, it has also slipped by three places in the diplomatic influence measure.
Indonesia exerts slightly more influence in the region than expected given its available resources, as indicated by the country’s positive power gap score. While Indonesia is a net overachiever in Asia, its positive power gap deteriorated in 2020. This reflects losses in its scores for diplomatic influence and defence networks.
