Our Impact

Since 2015, we’ve used evidence-based policy analysis and research to advocate for policy changes to improve the prosperity of everyday Indonesians. Through market-based approaches we’ve helped improve the incomes of families and individuals, and their communities and enterprises.

A Trusted and Credible Voice for Policymakers


The Central Java Provincial Government Integrates CIPS Recommendations for Corn Farmers in Seed Subsidy Programs.

The policy changes by the Central Java Provincial Agriculture Office are expected to increase the production of corn to 3.7 million in 2023. It mandates that the distribution of subsidized seeds only to regions categorized as having "semi-strong maize market status" and specified that appointed distributors must source these seeds solely from the free market, aligning with CIPS recommendations.
Approximately (XXX) corn farmers in Central Java are expected to benefit from a policy change by the Central Java Provincial Agriculture Office. 


CIPS leads expert team to develop a Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Action Plan for the Indonesian Government.

An action plan was drafted for the Indonesian Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs (CMEA)  to evaluate and recommend policies that enable Indonesia’s economy and business landscape to maximize its entrance into the agreement. The place is currently being deliberated to be made into a Presidential Decree. If enacted, it would open new markets for Indonesia and enable ease for Foreign Direct Investment to boost and deepen further economic development and growth.


CIPS Recommendations to Remove Burdensome Requirements for Online Sellers Reflected in Adjusted Ministry of Trade Regulation.

Informal Indonesian e-commerce merchants and entrepreneurs no longer have to go through costly and burdensome red tape to acquire special online seller permits and possible administrative sanctions through an amended Ministry of Trade Regulations No.50/2022. CIPS had highlighted the negative outcomes of adding barriers to informal online sellers, especially its impact on women, in a 2022 study titled Regulatory Reforms to Increase Women Micro-Entrepreneurs Participation in E-Commerce. 


Indonesia finally lifts the ban on sending migrant workers to 19 Middle Eastern countries, reflecting key messages from CIPS studies and policy recommendations.

Indonesian migrant workers, mostly women, are now able to access jobs and better incomes in the Middle East. CIPS highlighted in a 2015 study that emphasized focusing efforts in ensuring the safety of Indonesian workers abroad as a better approach to a total ban that cuts off remittances that rural households and families depend on.
