Discussion papers from Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI)

Abstract: This study examines the effect of Japanese aid-funded technical assistance programs in the Indonesian foundry industry funded, applying difference-in-differences propensity score matching estimation to a unique firm-level dataset. The major finding is that the average effect of the aid programs on the change in the reject ratio is negative and significant, suggesting that these programs help local participant firms improve their technology. However, the effect of the programs is limited to their participants and does not spill over to non-participants. In addition, technical assistance programs provided by the local counterpart of aid after the completion of the aid programs do not seem to improve technology of participants on average.
