Now is the ideal time for UK companies to export to one of the world’s leading emerging markets and fastest growing economies. Indonesia is part of the ASEAN Economic Community which allows fee movement of goods, services and skilled labour between member states which currently comprises of Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia and Brunei.

With over 600 million people, ASEAN's potential market is larger than the European Union or North America. ASEAN is one of the most open economic regions in the world, with total merchandise exports of over $1.2 trillion - nearly 54% of total ASEAN GDP and 7% of global exports. ASEAN’s physical infrastructure is critical to the ASEAN Economic Community’s goal of establishing a single market and production base. Cross-border roads, power lines, railways and maritime development will help propel the community forward. This in turn will boost existing and new value chains or production networks. 

David Cameron met the Indonesian President Joko Widodo in April 2016 to discuss security, trade and other global issues. Airbus and Rolls Royce signed an agreement with Garuda Airlines for a £4 billion which will be worth £1 billion to the UK economy. David Cameron said “This deal underlines the increasing importance of our ties with Indonesia – a fast growing economy and set to become the seventh largest in the world by 2030. We are the fifth biggest investor in Indonesia and our relationship has more untapped potential. We want to encourage more British businesses to seize on these opportunities and we will continue to support them by banging the drum for British skills and expertise.”

Indonesia is one of the world’s leading emerging economies and is one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. It has a population of over 251 million and a growing, and affluent middle class, which is estimated to be at least 35 million. The largest economic sector in Indonesia is manufacturing and processing, which contributes around 24% of the Gross Domestic Product.
