The textile and clothing industry occupies an important role in the Indonesian economy and is the country's second largest source of foreign earnings. Indonesia also has a huge and expanding domestic market for textiles and clothing, thanks to rising prosperity and a spread of wealth. This has helped the sector to avoid the worst effects of the recent global recession, but it also provides a tempting target for foreign suppliers and illegal imports. Looking ahead, there are ambitious plans for further expansion, and foreign investment is being strongly encouraged by the Indonesian government. This report looks at the development of the textile and clothing industry in Indonesia, its size and structure, textile and clothing production, and production technology and machinery. The report also features: a geographical, political and economic profile; a detailed look at the country's imports and exports; a review of government policies, investment incentives and foreign investments; an analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT); and a look at Indonesia's infrastructure and human resources and how these affect the textile and clothing industry.
