Economy

The Bandung economy is mainly built upon tourism, business, creative industry, high-tech and manufacturing industries, educational institutions, technology, retail services, financial services, pharmaceutical companies, and food production.[24]

Bandung has nearly 50 higher educational institutions and is among the most popular destination for education in Indonesia. The once quiet residential district of Dago has become an important business and entertainment centre with chic cafés and restaurants spread out along Dago Street. In the early 1990s Cihampelas Street became a popular clothing store location and remains so to this day.

Creative culture has shaped some of the Bandung economy. Small businesses known as "distro" sell non-trademarked products made by local designers. Books, indie label records, magazines, fashion products, and other accessories are typical distro products. Distros are popular with young people and distance themselves from factory outlets in term of philosophy. Distros arise from individual designers and young entrepreneurs, while factory outlet products are from large-scale garment factories.[61]

The Bandung city administration has agreed to substantially develop seven industrial and trade areas, for Bandung specialty products:[62]

  • Binong Jati Knitting Industrial and Trade Center
  • Cigondewah Textile Trade Center
  • Cihampelas Jeans Trade Center
  • Suci (T and Oblong) Shirt Industrial Center
  • Cibaduyut Shoes Industrial Center
  • Cibuntu Tofu and Tempeh Industrial Center
  • Sukamulya Sukajadi Doll Industrial Center

The city of Bandung is part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network which it joined in 2015.[63]
