To support the efforts of the Government of Indonesia as well as enhance researchers’ familiarity with new types of data, Pulse Lab Jakarta hosted 23 researchers consisting of economists, data analysts, and engineers for the fourth Research Dive for development on the topic of trade and competitiveness. The participants explored specific datasets guided by a few senior academics and a trade advisor from the Australia Indonesia Partnership for Economic Governance (AIPEG). The Research Dive covered four areas related to trade and competitiveness: (1) port network connectivity; (2) regional connectivity; (3) proxies for economic trends and shocks; and (4) meaningful correlations between postal network data and trade network data. This report captures the findings from the research.
