Yes Bhai - I understand housing is a great need in Pakistan and being invested in heavily by Pakistani developers. Of course there is plenty of land available and land is cheaper, unlike Bangladesh.
Indonesia being where it is economically, I am sure most consumer goods and produce is produced and consumed within Indonesia itself. So yes, imports of consumer goods should be pretty low. Interesting that Raw Material imports is fluctuating (indicating Industrial activity fluctuation maybe?). Is there a breakdown of diversified export products for Indonesia? Not that you have to find it now, take your time @Indos brother,@AViet
In my opinion they will evaluate through the production of raw material and import of raw material. Export of manufacturing products and the selling of manufacturing product from medium and large companies inside the country is easily seen as it is reported and get value added tax.
The one goes to SME (informal economy/not reported) can be seen on how many of raw material is not absorbed by medium and large companies, then they can calculate it and give some number (calculation on it). Food industries are also part of manufacturing as well
This is for example data of import in Indonesia when it is breakdown are in majority raw material

Blue Line is Raw Material/Supporting Goods (which is essential for manufacturing industry)
Black Line is capital Goods which is also essential for manufacturing
Red Line is consumer goods
Consumer goods imports is less than 10 percent of Indonesian total imports.
of course we get plenty of Indonesian FMCG products in Bangladesh, including baked goods and food products.
