Australia and Indonesia have signed a comprehensive economic partnership agreement. The agreement is yet to be ratified. This paper outlines the potential impact of the agreement on Western Australia. It also highlights the enormous long-term potential offered by closer economic ties, including more open trade with Indonesia, given that Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous nation, and is expected to become one of the world’s largest economies by 2050.
