To further develop our relationship, Australia and Indonesia are entering Phase-II of negotiations of a Free Trade Agreement (FTA), called the Indonesia Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA). While FTAs are negotiated and signed by governments, they are used by businesses. Fortunately, in this case both governments are particularly keen to have businesses involved and the Indonesia-Australia Business Partnership Group has been created to bring together Australian and Indonesian businesses to discuss joint interests and provide recommendations to government on the trade relationship.
The Australian Industry Group is a member of this group and we want to hear from members. What do you think could be done to improve economic relations between the two countries?
The ideas can be small and procedural or big structural changes – whatever would make doing business with Indonesia easier or better.
There are three ways you can submit your ideas:
- Respond to this quick questionnaire;
- Email or telephone Louise McGrath on 03 9867 0158; or
- Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 30, 2016.
