[JAKARTA] Indonesian Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said the country might be able to grow 5.2 per cent this year but it will be "a little bit tough".

The country's growth, which fell below 5 per cent last year, may have touched bottom, the minister told Reuters on Friday in her first interview with foreign media.

In the April-June quarter, Indonesia had better-than-expected annual growth of 5.18 per cent. In the first quarter, the pace was 4.92 per cent.
