Pro-competitive laws and regulations can bring greater efficiency to Indonesia’s logistics sector and help drive long-term economic growth. Over the last few years, Indonesia has improved the performance of its logistics industry, which ranked 46 among 160 countries in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI) in 2018. In 2019, Indonesia’s transportation and storage sector accounted for more than 5% of its GDP (around USD 63 billion).
Fostering competition in ASEAN is a project that reviews regulatory constraints on competition in the logistics sector in all ten ASEAN member countries to identify regulations that hinder the efficient functioning of markets and create an unlevel playing field for business. It comprises two parallel components: competition assessment reviews of specific logistics sub-sectors and competitive neutrality reviews of small-package delivery services. The project is undertaken in partnership with ASEAN and funded by the ASEAN Economic Reform Programme under the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (UK Government).
As a result of the project two reports, a competition assessment and a competitive neutrality assessment will be issued for each ASEAN member state.
A competition assessment of the logistics sector and a competitive neutrality review of small-package delivery services were virtually launched in co-operation with the Indonesia Competition Commission on 27 May 2021.
