The 5th EU-Indonesia Business Dialogue (EIBD) was held in Jakarta on the 19th November 2014.

EIBD is an annual forum conducted by Indonesian and European business leaders to formulate possible solutions and joint recommendations on issues affecting trade and investment between the EU and Indonesia. EIBD 2014 is supported by the Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia and co-funded by the European Union.

The objective of this year’s EIBD is to discuss possible policy perspectives, which could be taken into consideration by the newly elected Indonesian government and the recently appointed 2014-2019 European Commission. This edition will concentrate on the need to maintain Indonesia’s attractiveness for European foreign investment. Among other topics, the debate will cover the recent wave of protectionist measures verified across business sectors, real prospects of deregulation and liberalization and Indonesia’s competitiveness in the upcoming ASEAN Economic Community.

EIBD BookletIndonesia and the European Union have a strong relationship. Companies from the European Union have invested over US$ 130 billion in Indonesia and employ more than 1 million Indonesians. Indonesia is one of the European Union’s most important suppliers of a large number of essential commodities. In the last ten years, Indonesia’s exports to the European Union have doubled to US$ 22 billion.

The economies of Indonesia and the European Union are a perfect fit: the range of goods traded is largely complementary. This makes the relationship between the two economies of strategic importance to both.

At the same time though, the potential of trade and investment between Indonesia and the European Union is far from being fully utilised. European technologies in areas such as energy, transportation and agriculture are available to increase the competitiveness of the Indonesian economy, and European buyers appreciate the quality of a wide range of Indonesian products including food, garments, interior decoration and electronics.
