Indonesia provides 75% of the world’s edible bird’s nest needs. China and Hong Kong are the largest importer of Indonesian edible bird’s nest. In 2021, about 81% of 1,500 tons of Indonesian edible bird’s nest production are exported to these countries, of which 994 tons (65.8%) are exported to Hong Kong and 229 tons (15.2%) are exported to China. This study aims to analyze the dynamics of the Indonesian bird’s nest export and market to China and Hong Kong. The data used are secondary data. The data is analyzed by comparing the export and import volume and value of edible bird’s nest of the countries and the export volume and value of Indonesian edible bird’s nest to these countries as well. The results showed that Indonesian bird’s nest dominates the market in these two countries and it is also found that, in terms of export volume, Hong Kong is a largest importer of Indonesian bird’s nests. However, in terms of export value, China is the largest importer. In conclusion, Indonesia must try to increase their export volume to China and diversify its bird’s nest products.
