Abstract
In the context of a country's economy, one of the prominent discourse is about economic
growth. Although there are also other discourse about unemployment, inflation or rising prices
of goods at the same time, poverty, income distribution, and so forth. Economic growth is
important in the context of a country's economy because it can be one measure of growth or
achievement of the nation's economy, although it can not be denied that other measures. Wijono
(2005) states that economic growth is one of the indicators of development progress. One of the
things that can be used as a driving force for growth is international trade. Salvatore stated that
trade can be an engine for growth (trade as engine of growth, Salvatore, 2004). If the extent of
international trade is the export and import, then one of the components or both can be a
driving force for growth. Tambunan (2005) states in the early 1980s, Indonesia establish a form
of export promotion policies. Thus, the policy makes exports as a driving force for growth.
