Next week I will lead a major trade mission to Indonesia to help create more export opportunities for Australian businesses.

Indonesia-Australia Business Week follows the successful visit by President Widodo over the weekend.

The 120-strong Australian business delegation will build further momentum to conclude the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA).

IA-CEPA will create the framework for a new era of closer economic engagement between our 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.

Indonesia-Australia Business Week (IABW) is designed to develop business opportunities in key areas where Indonesian demand aligns with Australian capability.

IABW will highlight opportunities in vocational education and training, tourism, financial services and technology, water and sustainable urban design and agribusiness supply chains.

IABW will be held from 6-10 March 2017 in cities across Indonesia.
