Indonesia will reduce tariffs on the import of Australian raw sugar, and in return Australia will eliminate import duties on Indonesian herbicides and pesticides. According to the Australian Government, these measures will both boost Australia’s sugar industry and Indonesia’s chemical industry, and will provide flow-on economic benefits to both countries. The Government also said that Indonesian pesticides and herbicides will be more competitive in the Australian market as a result, offering greater choice to consumers. It also expects Indonesia’s processed food and beverage industries to benefit from lower raw sugar prices. Talks are currently underway on a proposed Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA).
