Econometric Model for Simulation of Alternative External Trade Scenarios in Indonesia

  • Iwan J. Azis


The model for Indonesia in this study is constructed for the specific purpose of policy simulation under different scenarios of trade, particularly with Indonesia’s major trading partners2. In line with such a purpose, the trade block is disaggregated based on the basis of commodity types and countries of destination. The baseline period used (1977–1988) is designed to capture significant shifts in policies and trends during the second half of 1980.
