The Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA) entered into force on 5 July 2020.

What IA-CEPA offers

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

Australia and Indonesia are committed to deepening our economic, trade and investment relationship. Indonesia is the largest economy in Southeast Asia and 16th largest economy in the world. By some estimates, Indonesia will be the world's fifth-largest economy by 2030. Indonesia presents a significant opportunity for Australian businesses.

Under IA-CEPA, 99% of Australian goods (by value) will enter Indonesia duty-free or under significantly improved preferential arrangements. IA-CEPA will also support stronger value-chains between Australian and Indonesian business. This ensures Australia is well-placed to deepen economic cooperation and share in Indonesia's growth. It also provides a major boost across a range of services sectors. This includes education and training, tourism, financial, mining and energy, as well as providing new mechanisms to address non-tariff barriers.
