Vehicle insurance premiums increased by 16.9% to IDR4.79tn ($333bn) in 1Q2018 compared to the corresponding quarter last year, the General Insurance Association of Indonesia (AAUI) has disclosed.
AAUI executive director Dody Dalimunthe attributed this positive performance to the improved automotive market in early 2018, reported Kontan. 
Car sales in the first quarter of this year reached 291,912 units, up 2.85% year on year.
