Market Focus : Indonesia

  • Wednesday 04 November 2020 11:00-12:30
  • Online
  • Organisation : Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Bern in partnership with the CCIG

The EFTA States (Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and Indonesia signed a Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, CEPA, in Jakarta on 16 December 2018. The agreement will increase legal certainty, improve the predictability of the bilateral economic relations, and promote cooperation between the authorities. Tariff concessions are designed in such a way that all major Swiss export sectors can benefit from the agreement, including both industry and producers of agricultural products. In return, Switzerland will grant Indonesia duty-free access for industrial products. The tariff concessions granted in the agricultural sector are essentially the same as those in other free trade agreements.

Indonesia, with its dynamic and fast-growing economy and the largest population of the region, represents a major market and a partner of great importance to EFTA. The complementarity of the economies represents a natural starting point from which to build a strong economic partnership for the long term. The IE-CEPA will open up for greater flows of foreign direct investment from the EFTA States, stimulating the economies of both EFTA and Indonesia by spurring the transfer of technologies and job creation as well as fostering Indonesia´s competitiveness vis-a-vis the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

This webinar is an important chance to know more about the new opportunities under IE-CEPA and to share the successful experiences of various companies based in Indonesia.
