From the table above, it can be concluded that Indonesia's trade deficit is caused by the deficit in Indonesia's oil and gas sector. Regarding the non-oil and gas sector, Indonesia posted a trade surplus of USD $490 million in September 2013. However, despite the ongoing deficit in the country's oil and gas sector, Suryamin (Head of Statistics Indonesia) said that import of oil in September declined 8.87 percent compared to the previous month. This is the result of the government's decision to raise prices of subsidized fuels in June 2013.
