A study found that, when considering all ten factors Thailand has high potential than Indonesia, which means in term of general macroeconomic conditions it is better for automotive manufacturers to invest due to the generous tax incentive, supporting from government and financial sector, well-developed infrastructures and strong support from automotive industrial cluster.
    When take place to the most considered factors in term of country’s competitiveness which are labor cost, local demands, proximity to suppliers and infrastructure. Indonesia slightly outperforms in labor cost and outstanding in domestic demands. On the other side, Indonesia has less potential in infrastructure and proximity to suppliers when comparing to the Thailand. Furthermore since automotive industry is a labor oriented industry that is labor factor must be considered as first priority and this industry targeted for local demands, in this case Indonesia is a best site to locate.
