The purpose of this report is to review and discuss the economic goals and benefits of competition policy and describe how the benefits of competition may be achieved in the Indonesian economy. Benefits from competition include lower prices, increased output, quality and choice, incentives for innovation, and more efficient use of resources. This report also examines several industries in Indonesia and suggests a framework within which the competitiveness of these, and other, industries may be evaluated.
