Event overview

The recent Australia in the Asian Century White Paper lists Indonesia as one of six key relationships for Australia. Indonesia's economy is forecast to double in size over the next 10 years, underpinned by domestic consumption.

In 2011-12, Australia's two-way trade with Indonesia was $14.9 billion, up 8.3 per cent from 2010-11, and Australian investment in Indonesia remained steady in 2011 at $5.4 billion. In 2011, Indonesian investment in Australia rose 11 per cent to $454 million.

It has been suggested that Indonesia has long been an overlooked opportunity for Australia and that more is required to increase and strengthen bilateral trade and investment.

This CEDA event will bring a range of expert speakers together to comment and provide analysis on:

Opportunities

  • Increased demand for professional services - particularly finance, education, health management and training;
  • Infrastructure opportunities and PPPs;
  • Clean energy environment management;
  • Consumer goods; and
  • Defence.

Challenges

  • Policy uncertainty - on both sides? Australia's general election to take place at the end of 2013 and Indonesia due in 2014;
  • Transparent and seamless regulatory processes;
  • Barriers for the movement of skilled workers; and
  • Liberalisation of trade through the reduction/removal of tariffs.
