Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement

(IA-CEPA) – Workshop Series

The Australia Indonesia Business Council (AIBC) invites you to take part in a tailored, four-part workshop series exploring how best to prepare for the introduction of the recently signed, and soon to be ratified, IA-CEPA. The series, with 3 workshops in Perth plus 1 in Jakarta, will feature guest speakers from event sponsors Westpac, Qantas, Pitcher Partners, Export Finance Australia (formerly known as EFIC), AustCyber, together with other industry experts.

IA-CEPA creates a framework for Australia and Indonesia to unlock the vast potential of the bilateral economic partnership, fostering economic cooperation between businesses, communities and individuals.

IA-CEPA will improve conditions for services suppliers and the climate for two-way investment. Australian services suppliers and investors will have greater certainty for entry and operation in the Indonesian market, helping to facilitate more Australian investment in Indonesia. This will create more opportunities for Australians to help meet Indonesia's growing needs for investment and for the supply of world class goods and services in its market.
