As the two largest economies in the region, Australia and Indonesia share interests and a common future. Although bilateral investment between Australia and Indonesia reached
$9.8 billion in 2015, there is still considerable opportunity for Australia to expand its trade, investment and economic cooperation with Indonesia.

The Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA) promises to build on existing multilateral and regional agreements, providing the framework needed to support a new era of closer economic engagement between Australia and Indonesia.

  • What do these developments mean for South Australian businesses? 
  • How can businesses benefit from these agreements? 
  • What support is available to help businesses expand into Indonesia, and Asian markets more broadly?

Join leading experts to discuss the next chapter of economic relations between Australia and Indonesia, learn from the firsthand experience of businesses successfully engaged in international trade in the region and find out what this means for South Australian businesses.
