If you’re an Australian business looking to export goods to a brand-new market, it makes perfect sense to consider Indonesia as a destination country. Why? Well, for starters, it’s the largest nation in southeast Asia – in fact, it’s achieving growth rates of around 5% per year. By 2030, it’s predicted to be the seventh-largest economy in the world. Sounds like a good place to invest, doesn’t it?

Why Export To Indonesia?

With a population of around 260 million people, Indonesia is the world’s fourth-largest country. Of these, about 45 million people belong to the consumer class. That’s a huge number of individuals to market your goods to.

Indonesia is urbanising at a rapid rate; over 30 million people live in the greater Jakarta metropolitan zone alone. Urban lifestyles, and therefore markets for international goods, styles and services, are constantly on the rise.

Trade Tariffs Between Indonesia And Australia

Many of those wanting to export to Indonesia from Australia will benefit from the AANZFTA, the free trade agreement between Australia/NZ and the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries. This agreement has meant many import tariffs for goods entering Indonesia have been eliminated.
