JAKARTA, Sept 10 (Reuters) -
* Retail sales in Indonesia grew at a stronger pace of 2.9
in July from a year earlier, compared with June's 2.3 percent
growth, as demand increases at the beginning of new academic
year for primary and secondary schools, a central bank survey
showed on Monday.
* Retail sales were mainly backed by the sales of clothes
* The survey predicted August's year-on-year retail sales
would slow slightly to 2.8 percent.
