Abstract

Historical experiences underline the positive impact of industrial policies on economies across the development spectrum, sparking extensive debates within the realm of industrial policy. Nevertheless, there has been a scarcity of research delving into the methodology for judiciously selecting sectors for targeted industrial policies, a void that this study endeavors to fill. This study adopts a multi-dimensional approach, employing Indonesia as a case study and incorporating diverse development scenarios to facilitate informed decision-making for governments in sector selection. The conceptual framework and empirical insights presented herein contribute significantly to the literature on industrial targeting.
