TFP Mission to Indonesia
11—14 August 2009
An APO mission was sent to Indonesia, 11–14 August, under the research project on the APO Productivity Database (PDB) undertaken by the Research and Planning Department of the Secretariat. The mission spent one day giving a series of lectures on productivity measurement, particularly on TFP computation methodology. The mission visited Statistics Indonesia (BPS) (http://www.bps.go.id/) to discuss the availability and coverage of the data necessary for TFP computations.
