Street vendor management in Indonesia and Thailand

WithR. Pasciana, P. Pundenswari, G. Sadrina

Street vendors are an urban global phenomenon that exists almost all over the world. In members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), including Indonesia and Thailand, the informal economic sector is quite dominant. Street vendors are considered a source of problems, such as disruption of pedestrians, traffic jams, and making the city look dirty. This study aimed to compare the management of street vendors in Indonesia and Thailand. The research method was qualitative. Data collection techniques were carried out through a literature review derived from published journals related to this research. The results of this study indicated that community culture and government policies present differences related to the management of street vendors in Indonesia and Thailand. Indonesia can adopt several things from Thailand, such as management and strategies to encourage street vendors to be directed by the government for the common good.
