Currently, the global economy, including Indonesia, is experiencing uncertainty and is leading to an economic recession due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Several major countries in the world experienced negative economic growth in Q1 and II of 2020. The global economic slowdown has an impact on Indonesia's economic growth performance in 2020. Indonesia's economic growth in the first quarter of 2020 was 1.26%, while in the second quarter of 2020 it contracted minus 5,32%. The Central Java economy during the second quarter of 2020 contracted minus 5.94%, while during the first quarter of 2020 it still recorded a growth of 2.61%. The Covid-19 pandemic has a domino effect from health to social and economic problems (BPS, 2020).
