Productivity Growth in Indonesia: The Role of Regional Characteristics and Direct Foreign Investment
Using detailed micro data from the Indonesian manufacturing sector, we examine the effect on productivity growth of different regional characteristics and direct foreign investment. The results suggest that a diversified regional industry sector increase productivity growth. Direct foreign investment benefits establishments in neighbouring industries within the region. There are intra-industry spillovers from direct foreign investment at a national level, but there does not seem to be a geographic component in this type of spillovers.
