Free trade deal with
Indonesia crucial for Australia
The Prime Minister's trip to Indonesia is to secure
a free trade agreement with a vastly under-rated economic partner, says UNSW
Business School's Tim Harcourt.
“Australia depends on
rocks and crops,” says the UNSW Business School’s Tim Harcourt. “And many of
Australian grain growers are doing it tough right now. That’s why they, and cattlemen,
have high hopes of big reductions in tariffs with Indonesia, ahead of these
Scott Morrison is hoping to secure a landmark trade deal with
Indonesia as he takes his first overseas trip as Prime Minister.
“Morrison has a hard act to follow. Malcolm Turnbull had very
good relations with Indonesian President Joko Widodo, and the loss of Julie
Bishop who was much respected in the region is another body blow. But Morrison
will know that dairy, citrus and sugar producers want a deal. But a deal may be
tough. Indonesian wants to be self-sufficient with its food,” says Harcourt,
the J.W. Nevile Fellow in Economics at the UNSW Business School.
The PM has flown to Indonesia to
meet with his counterpart Joko Widodo eight years after the two
nations first began talks on a free trade agreement.
“Wheat exports make up about half of Australia's agricultural
trade with Indonesia,” he says, and adds Indonesia is a vital trade partner
with Australia, worth $16 billion in two way trade, and also a vital education
“In fact, in the greater scheme of things, Indonesia is a much
underrated economic partner. As well as big names like ANZ, Leightons,
Commbank, Orica and Bluescope, over 2400 Australian businesses export goods
alone to Indonesia and many corporates have receive rates of return
four times that of China and
India. But there are only 250 Australian companies with a presence in Indonesia, which compares to over 3,000 in other markets like
Harcourt argues that free trade is crucial for Australia, and
increased tensions around a trade war would not be good for the world economy.
“World leaders now fear a trade war, just when there were good signs of better
days ahead in the global economy.”
