INDONESIA: Is there Room for Cartel and Collaboration in the New Normal?

Among the many devastating impacts, the COVID-19 outbreak has demonstrated how a pandemic can have a significant and adverse effect on economic activities, both from supply and demand perspectives. Market distortion, disruption of supply-chain and increasing demand for various healthcare products and services are among the main issues sparked by the pandemic.
