Outcomes and Deliverables
The project will generate a written report on the Indonesian food processing sector and its integration in global production networks. Considering the relative lack of previous publicly-available publications on the sector, the report will have considerable appeal to governments, development agencies, industry associations and private sector firms in both countries. In addition, modified versions of the research findings will be presented for publication in appropriate academic publications, such as the Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies, which has wide readership among senior policy makers in Indonesia.
The report will be launched through an industry forum that will encourage further dialogue between research, policy, and industry stakeholders.
