Abstract

This study aims to describe year on year about the number of MSME business units, the number of MSME workforce, and the total number of MSME exports in the period of 2010-2018. Secondary data used in this study came from the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs in the period 2010-2018 with interval scale and pooled data. The results of the study were in the period of 2010-2018: the number of MSMEs increased by 21.06%; the number of large businesses increased by 18.70%; the proportion of the number of MSMEs compared to large businesses increased from 99.9911% to 99.9914%; the average number of workers in large businesses has increased from 576 people to 652 people; the ability to absorb labor at MSMEs has increased from 316 to 357 times greater than large businesses; the number of MSME exports increased by 36.6%; the number of exports of large businesses decreased and the ratio of the number of MSME exports compared to large businesses increased from 21% to 150%. The conclusion of this study is the number of MSMEs and the ability to absorb labor has increased from the period 2010-2018. However, the number of non-oil exports have fluctuated from the period 2010-2018. Therefore, MSMEs facilitation policy from the government is needed so that MSMEs are able to access product sales overseas.
