Export & Import in Indonesia

The flow of trade that occurred in Indonesia has increased quite rapidly. The nation of Indonesia has traditionally used the traditional trading system or known as the barter system. But since year 2000, since digital developments have penetrated Indonesia, this has also affected trade. This trade is known as Export and Import in Indonesia.

Export is the process of transportation of goods or commodities from one country to another country while the import is the process of transportation of goods or commodities from one country to another by legal. Both of these international trade impacts positive and negative for countries that trade, such as Indonesia. Indonesia is a country that has a high level of natural resources which makes it the most needed producer and non-oil country.
