Strengthening Indonesia’s institutional capacities to coordinate and implement trade and investment policies
BAPPENAS, the central institution concerned with strategic planning, and the Ministry of Trade, the lead negotiator for Indonesia for the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA), are coordinating the two work streams of this priority area.
Support to the national development planning process
- BAPPENAS is equipped with economic modelling tools that are customised to Indonesia’s needs with support from Oxford Economics and hands-on training to strengthen policy analysis and the development of policy documents such as the National Medium-Term Development Plan.
- Institutional capacity in conducting trade policy planning and investment policy reviews is enhanced through knowledge improvement and the application of methodological best practices to real case studies and analysis such as the policy impact assessment of the CEPA and Investor Perception Studies on Indonesia’s Investment Policy Framework.
Support to FTA/CEPA through a Rapid Response Facility
- Institutional capacities to participate in international trade negotiations and to implement them are enhanced.
- Knowledge on key topics and skills related to the analysis of trade policies and necessary to conduct international trade negotiations, especially the CEPA, are improved.
- Processes to engage the private sector on trade policy development are also improved.
