Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in not only health crisis but also economic shocks. It is essential to develop flexible economic models which evaluate the impact of pandemics on different economic sectors. Such assessments are fundamental to inform and to tailor the responses of governments and stakeholders to reduce the adverse impact on the economy during and post-pandemic. In light of this, an overall vulnerability index that takes into account four components namely economic impact, diversity of reach, sector size and income, is developed on the basis of input-output foundations for sectoral prioritization. A comparative assessment between identified key priority sectors is done between the country scale and the regional level. The Indonesian economy as a whole and the province of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), Indonesia are examined to demonstrate the capabilities of the model. A sensitivity analysis is then implemented to evaluate the possible weighting scenarios of index value and its ranking. The results indicate that the process industry is the most vulnerable sector for the whole country while the service sector has the highest impact for NTT. Finally, policy implications are presented to support government in the development of proper strategies to reduce economic losses during and post-pandemic.
