Following the successful first presidential debate in the Republic of Indonesia on December 12, 2023, the General Election Commission (KPU) has set the schedule for the second presidential and vice-presidential debate. This debate will spotlight economic issues and is scheduled to take place on December 22, 2023.

The second debate will center around the theme of the economy, addressing various aspects such as people's economy, digital economy, finance, investment, taxes, trade, management of state and regional budgets, infrastructure, and urban development.
