JAKARTA, 11th of November 2021 – As one of the leaders in Indonesia’s tech ecosystem, Grab is expected to play a pivotal role not only in helping communities across Indonesia overcome the adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, but also in promoting the communities’ economic development, especially the marginalized ones. While Grab’s impact on the broader Indonesia economy has been documented by previous studies (Tenggara Strategics, 2018), there has been no study on Grab’s impact on frontiers, outermost, and less-developed regions, despite the apparent need to investigate whether Grab’s benefits have been shared equally across the regions. Against such a backdrop, LPEM UI has conducted research to study the impact of Grab on the less economically-developed regions such as Kupang and Jayapura. Such research is expected to inform relevant Grab stakeholders and policymakers in their efforts to formulate strategies and/or policies to maximize their impacts across Indonesia.…

Using primary data from the LPEM FEB UI survey conducted in August—September 2020, this study found that people with higher economic conditions and older tend to have relatively stable or increased income and expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. On the other hand, individuals with lower socioeconomic levels with jobs in the worst-affected sectors experienced reduced income and expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The coping mechanisms between individual groups during the COVID-19 pandemic are also different, with people with stable jobs and higher asset holdings having several positive ways of surviving.…
