Indonesia started to integrate with ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) since December 31st, 2015. ASEAN will become a single market and a single production base which occurs the flow of goods, services, skilled labor, investment and freer capital in the ASEAN region. It will open opportunities for Indonesia to increase its market share in the ASEAN region. Unfortunately, based on Global Competitiveness Report, Indonesia rank is decrease from
34th to 37th in 2016, even overall trade balance was surplus.Therefore, Indonesia should maintain the competitivenessin terms of products, services and human resources (skilled labor) to comply with theAEC.The collaboration among the academics, businesses and government by sharing infrastructure, technology, funding and human resources hopefully will support this issue, especially for high technology content which has more added value.
