Ross Taylor: It’s time to deepen ties with Indonesia

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and his Foreign Minister Penny Wong will visit Indonesia on Sunday with the aim of deepening relations with our giant neighbour and our region.

Of course it’s primarily about business and trade opportunities, but in today’s post-COVID world there is a lot more that demands closer links with Indonesia, a nation of 275 million people whose growth will skyrocket to it becoming the world’s 4th largest economy by 2045.

Indonesia has traditionally looked north for its partnerships and investment opportunities but COVID-19 and climate change means Australia needs to view Indonesia in a new light as we seek to grow and diversify our trade links beyond the over-reliance on China, and how Indonesia must now view Australia as it seeks new digital innovation, food, mining technology and clean-green energy partnerships.
