Toward a US-Indonesia Free Trade Agreement


Policy Analyses in International Economics 83

by Gary Clyde Hufbauer and
Sjamsu Rahardja

Description

Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world. Would a free trade agreement (FTA) with the country be beneficial both economically and politically to the United States? What kind of benefit could Indonesia expect? This book presents a case for improved trade relations between Indonesia and the United States and recommends advancing exploratory talks toward a US-Indonesia FTA. The authors present a detailed study of the stakes involved in the various areas of the proposed negotiation and estimate the FTA’s potential for trade creation, trade diversion, and welfare under different scenarios.
