Indonesia-Australia Economic Powerhouse Opportunities Study
Katalis has engaged International Economics Consulting Ltd. (IEC) to investigate the economic powerhouse opportunities between Indonesia and Australia in maximising the outcome of Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA).
This study will identify which Australia’s industries can export the raw material products to Indonesian industries to be processed further into final goods to be exported to third countries, and vice versa. Katalis and IEC have been conducting a study on this topic, with some preliminary output. To ensure the study brings the most benefit possible to Australian and Indonesian businesses and validate our modelling and assessments, we are seeking relevant stakeholders to participate in a short, no‑obligation and confidential survey coordinated with International Economics.
Identified potential economic powerhouse opportunities include:
- Indonesian farming chemicals (fertilisers, herbicides, insecticides) to be used as input of Australian agriculture sectors
- Australian basic metals (identified competitive products: aluminium and gold) to be used as input of Indonesian music instruments, tricycles/pedal cars and jewellery
- Indonesian heavy machineries to be used as input of Australian mining industries
- Australian agriculture products (limited to dairy, oats, sorghum, barley, and fruits) to be used as input of Indonesian processed food industries (cakes, biscuits, pastas, processed fruits).
