Indonesia has an enormous population of around 260 million, and is the largest economy in southeast Asia. Around 45 million belong to its consuming classes – this is a significant number of people who may be interested in buying goods and services from overseas. Indonesia’s annual growth rate is around 5% and its population is growing rapidly, with more and more urban dwellers requiring imported items each year.

Less Export Tariff: Australia To Indonesia
The great news is that because of the, AANZFTA, the economic partnership agreement between Australia and Indonesia, which came into force in 2009, the import and export tariffs you pay when transferring goods to Indonesia are lower – and often non-existent.
The AANZFTA opened up a dynamic Asian market to Australian businesses, because it meant there was less export tariffs from Australia to Indonesia when bringing goods into this country. In order to benefit from preferential tariffs, your products must comply with the agreement’s Rules of Origin. This means they need to be accompanied by a COO (Certificate of Origin) from an authorising body such as the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry or the Australian Industry Group.
