The existence of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) is an essential factor in the economic growth of a country. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the sustainability of MSMEs in Indonesia. Based on these conditions, the MSMEs need a suitable legal policy to support them, especially in post-COVID-19 economic recovery. This normative juridical research with conceptual, comparative, and statutory approach aims to analyze the Government of Indonesia’s (GoI) legal policy on the MSMEs post-COVID-19 pandemic economic recovery. This research also discusses the GoI legal policy impact on the MSMEs. The result shows the GoI has issued several legal policies in the form of regulations, such as Law Number 6 of 2023 concerning Approval of Government Regulation in Lieu of Law Number 2 of 2022 concerning Job Creation, The Government Regulation Number 7 of 2021 concerning Simplicity, Protection, and Empowerment of Cooperatives and Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises and The Regulation of the Minister of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Number 2 of 2019 concerning Electronically Integrated Business Licensing for Micro and Small Businesses. These regulations provide convenience to MSMEs in obtaining permits with Business Identification Numbers, while other licenses are adjusted to the risk level of the business activity. In addition, MSMEs may access various incentives and subsidies. Those regulations were addressed explicitly by the GoI to strengthen the position of MSMEs, which will directly impact the strengthening and growth of the national economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.
