Thejakartatimes – The level of competition Indonesian businessmen for the manufacturing sector is still very low, and far from ideal.
Once said by the Chairman of the Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU) Syarkawi Rauf in a discussion titled ‘Hazard Oligarki Ekonomi’ at Megawati Institute, Menteng, Jakarta, Wednesday (27/12).
According to him, Indonesia’s manufacturing industry competition index is still lower compared to Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.
“We have an index at 0.6 percent for national manufacturing competition which we think is still sloping and not good,” said Syarkawi.
He considered, not the development of manufacturing industry in Indonesia can not be separated from the emergence of the post-Reform oligar group. This group causes the concentration of capital in a few people, so that for small businesses become difficult to develop.
“Currently there are only two big players who are concentrated in the big manufacturing sector in our country,” said Syarkawi. (Thejakartatimes/R)
