Growth in number of businesses slowing down in last decade

Indonesia today has 26.7 million registered businesses across all sectors excluding agriculture, a 17.6 percent increase from 22.7 million entities in 2006, a preliminary report of the 2016 economic census shows.

However, growth in the number of registered business entities has slowed down considerably over the past decades.

According to data from past economic censuses, there were 9.3 million businesses entities in 1986, which then climbed by 7.1 million to 16.4 million in 1996. The number grew by 6.3 million to 22.7 million units in 2006. Growth of four million over the last decade is 59.7 percent lower than the average growth.

"There were an additional four million business entities in the past ten years […] The closer one gets to eastern Indonesia, the higher the business unit growth," Central Statistics Agency (BPS) head Suryamin said in Jakarta on Friday.

He explained that Maluku and Papua recorded the highest growth rate at 51.7 percent in the last ten years, to half a million business units. However Java still dominated, with 16.2 million business units, an 11.9 percent increase from 14.5 million units counted in 2006.

BPS has produced economic census reports since 1986 to gain a better understanding of the country's economic landscape. The reports provide people with data on the number of business units as well as their types, productivity, manpower, revenue and costs.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
