This study mainly discusses efforts to boost Indonesian exports by formulating Indonesian product competitiveness mapping analysis with Yemen as the counterpart. Based on the product competitiveness mapping analysis, it could be concluded that in general the Indonesian export products has higher competitiveness than the Yemeni export products. At the same time, however, the two countries can be said still have a low level of competitiveness of their respective export products. The study suggests both countries should pursue a bilateral FTA. There are rationales for pursuing bilateral FTA including in which Indonesian exported products could partially meet the needs of Yemen, Yemen is a net importer relying heavily on commodity imports to meet its domestic demand, countries’ economic diversification effort, and South-South Cooperation.
