In recent years, protectionism has become fashionable once again. More than 8 thousand discriminatory measures were introduced globally between November 2008 and June 2017.

President Widodo’s government is implementing free-market measures and reforms, presenting the country as a symbol of political stability and economic dynamism and attracting foreign investors.
