IABW will comprise a range of trade, investment, education and tourism promotion events. With negotiations continuing to progress the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, IABW is the ideal event for Australian businesses to explore the diverse commercial opportunities in Indonesia.
Jakarta, with a population exceeding 30 million, dominates the economic landscape but the frontier of growth in Indonesia is second-tier cities such as Surabaya, Makassar, Medan, Balikpapan and Denpasar, which are recording close to double-digit growth. With a population of more than 255 million - more than half of whom are under 30 years of age - Indonesia has one of the largest consumer markets in South East Asia.
Five sector-specific programs will be held with some sub-streams within these sectors. The IABW 2017 program will feature seminars, roundtables, site visits, product showcases and opportunities for networking with Indonesian businesses, industry and government.
