Fish Market in Aceh Busy as Indonesia Faces Positive Growth, World Bank Says

LAMPULO, Indonesia – A traditional fishing market near Banda Aceh, the capital of Indonesia’s northwestern Aceh province, was Wednesday bustling with activity as fishermen sold their catch to local vendors.

About 1,000 people come and go daily through the market at Lampulo, which opens at 3:00 am after fishermen have returned in their boats from the sea, an efe-epa journalist reported.

Aceh, a mostly rural province, depends heavily on the agriculture and fishing industry for its economy.

According to a tweet from the World Bank on Wednesday, Indonesia as a whole maintained strong economic growth in 2017 and the archipelago country’s GDP is projected to grow 5.3 percent in 2018.

More expansion of industry would be welcome in Aceh where fishermen who can’t sell all of their catch are reportedly forced to dump it back into the ocean.

The tweet from the World Bank is based on a 2018 outlook report it issued for Indonesia in which it recommended that to achieve inclusive growth, the country should spend better on education and more on infrastructure and health.
