Does a Free Trade Agreement’s Impact on the Export of Halal Food to OIC Countries Matter? Evidence from Indonesia

This journal investigates the impact of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) on Indonesian halal food exports to the countries of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Using data from 23 countries over the period 2003-2019, it was found that FTAs significantly increase Indonesian exports by 68%. Factors such as GDP, population size, and trade openness positively affect exports, while distance and entry time have negative impacts. This research provides important insights for Indonesian trade policies with OIC countries, offering perspectives to enhance market access and economic growth.
