Indonesia: Exporter Guide

Indonesia faces economic challenges in 2015 and 2016. Bank Indonesia expects growth at approximately 4.7 – 5.1 percent in 2015 and 5.2-5.6 percent in 2016. Indonesia has adopted policies to protect its growing domestic industry from international competition and to help secure its trade balance. Agricultural self-sufficiency is a stated goal of the Indonesian government, and is used to justify trade barriers. Indonesia has made efforts to incentivize foreign investment since September 2015, but this has not resulted in improved terms of trade for U.S. agricultural exporters. Opportunities exist for exporters to serve Indonesia’s tourist market, Indonesia’s aspirational time-sensitive urban population, and Indonesia’s growing food processing industry.
