Oz minister to bring major trade mission to Indonesia
The Jakarta Post
Following a visit by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo over the weekend, Australian Trade, Tourism and Investment Minister Steven Ciobo will lead a major trade mission to Indonesia next week to help create more export opportunities for Australian businesses.
As many as 120 business delegation members will attend the Indonesia-Australia Business Week (IABW) March 6-10 in several cities across Indonesia.
"Indonesia-Australia Business Week (IABW) is designed to develop business opportunities in key areas where Indonesian demand aligns with Australian capability," Ciobo wrote in an official statement received by The Jakarta Post on Monday.
IABW will highlight opportunities in vocational education and training, tourism, financial services and technology, water and sustainable urban design and agribusiness supply chains, he added.
He believes that the 120-strong Australian business delegation will build further momentum to conclude the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA).
The IA-CEPA will create the framework for a new era of closer economic engagement between the two countries, creating new opportunities and markets for Australian exporters.
"With a middle class of more than 45 million forecast to grow to 135 million by 2030, there is enormous scope to expand our trade and economic relationship with Indonesia by supplying the growing needs of Indonesian consumers with Australian quality goods and services," Ciobo stated. (bbn)
