Blink and you might have missed it, but from this month New Zealand businesses will have greater and easier access to the fourth largest country in the world - and it's practically on our doorstep.

Indonesia completed the domestic procedures required to enter the Asean-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA) in November - the last Asean member state to formally agree to implement the agreement. The FTA will come into force on Tuesday.


Today Indonesia enters the ASEAN/Australia and New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA).

The agreement, which was signed in February 2009, significantly opens the markets of ASEAN countries to New Zealand and Australian goods and services, and vice versa. There are many opportunities for Indonesian business to now sell their products in the New Zealand market.


Indonesia, which has gone through remarkable democratic transition over the past twelve years, has for four years now hosted the Bali Democracy Forum (BDF) to allow countries to share their experiences and concerns about democracy and the democratic process.


“Climate Change Adaptation and Small islands in Eastern Indonesia” was the title of a forum held recently in Lombok, Indonesia to discuss issues relating to climate change.  The forum attracted around 80 people from Indonesia’s central and local governments, donor communities, as well as local and international non-government organisations (NGO’s) from across the country.  Staff of the New Zealand Aid Programme (NZAP) in Indonesia attended the forum given the NZAP's focus on eastern Indonesia.
