The Conference has provided an opportunity to learn from key players in Indonesia-Australia space, benefited from IA-CEPA, practical ways to enter into the “next door” market and most importantly to build a valuable network. Notable speakers included representatives from both Indonesian and Australian government representatives and business leaders who have successfully established their businesses in the neighbouring market.
The format of the Conference was hybrid, facilitated the participation from Indonesian Government as well as to allow Indonesian businesses to participate in the conference. Participants in Australia were encouraged to attend and network in person in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, which is also known as the Sunshine State.
