Visit to Indonesia to deepen trade and economic cooperation

  • Media Release

I will travel to Bali, Indonesia from 4-6 November 2019 to represent Australia at the Indonesia-Australia Business Council Conference and further deepen economic relations between our two countries.

Business and government leaders will discuss opportunities to grow our economic relationship during the conference, highlighting opportunities under the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership (IA-CEPA).

This visit is an important opportunity to advance our trade and economic agenda with Indonesia, which has great potential to grow under IA-CEPA.

Free Trade Agreements are delivering significant benefits to Australian businesses that are seeking to expand their global market presence, as well as helping to create more Australian jobs. 

I will meet with government counterparts, local and Australian businesses to discuss how they can benefit from IA-CEPA. 

I look forward seeing firsthand how Bali-based businesses are using Australian agricultural goods to make products for the huge Indonesian market.

The partnership between Australia and Indonesia is one of our nation's most significant. Indonesia is one of the largest economies in the world, and strengthening economic ties will lead to even greater opportunities for Australian businesses.

As two of the most stable and largest economies in our region, IA-CEPA presents a unique opportunity to grow our economic relationship.
