This paper provides a profile of three major automobile manufacturers in Indonesia: the Astra group, the Suzuki group and the Matsubishi Krama Yudha group. Together, they control more than 85 percent of the automobile market in Indonesia. Various types of related party transactions in the auto industry and their transfer prices are also discussed. It appears that Japanese multinational companies are playing a dominant role in the development of the auto industry in Indonesia.

The research on which this paper is based was funded by the United Nations Development Programme and the Centre on Transnational Corporations.
