Productivity in the Indonesian Automotive Industry

Sjöholm, Fredrik LU and Okamoto, Yumiko (2000) In ASEAN Economic Bulletin 17(1). p.1-14
Abstract
Indonesia, like many other countries in Southeast Asia, has actively promoted the automotive industry. The governmental interventions have ranged from tariffs and non-tariff barriers to various local content programmes.

This article examines productivity performance in the Indonesian automotive industries. More specifically, it addresses two questions. Firstly, has the industry left the "infant industry" status? Secondly, what roles have multinational enterprises played in the development of the automotive industry in Indonesia? In examining the issues at hand, establishment data for the Indonesian automotive industries... (More)
Indonesia, like many other countries in Southeast Asia, has actively promoted the automotive industry. The governmental interventions have ranged from tariffs and non-tariff barriers to various local content programmes. As a result, imports of ready made cars and motorcycles have been expensive, which led to an inflow of foreign producers. This article examines productivity performance in the Indonesian automotive industries. More specifically, it addresses two questions. Firstly, has the industry left the "infant industry" status? Secondly, what roles have multinational enterprises played in the development of the automotive industry in Indonesia? In examining the issues at hand, establishment data for the Indonesian automotive industries between 1990–95 is used. The methodology examines the dynamics of the different sub-sectors' productivity performance: which establishments account for most of the productivity growth, and how important entry and exit of establishments are to the overall performance.
