Neo-liberalism in Indonesia’s foreign economic policies
Alexander C. Chandra
eBook Edition: 2011

Overall, the paper argues that, although Indonesia has in general adopted a rather pragmatic FEP, the ideology of neo-liberalism has indeed crept into the country’s FEP. It discusses why two key factors make neo-liberal ideology attractive among Indonesian FEP policy-making circles. The first is the changing global and regional economic environment that requires Indonesia to shift its foreign economic strategy from an inward-looking economic system to a more outward-oriented economic approach. Critical to this is the failure of the protectionist system to expand the opportunities available to the country’s economic actors and enhance the overall economic welfare of the people. The second factor is the emergence of new intellectual groups and individuals who have promoted alternative views to the prevailing protectionist policies that made for corruption, collusion and nepotism during the New Order era.
