U.S. Upbeat on Efforts to Strengthen Trade Relations with Indonesia
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative issued a press release May 21 that gave an upbeat assessment of recent talks with Indonesia under a bilateral trade and investment framework agreement. According to the USTR, the two sides agreed to strengthen cooperation on a number of issues and welcomed progress on several existing initiatives.
The most notable result of the TIFA talks was an agreement to formally establish working groups intended to deepen economic relations in four key areas: intellectual property rights, agricultural and industrial goods, services and investment. USTR Susan Schwab and Indonesian Minister of Trade Mari Pangestu directed the new working groups to develop specific initiatives in these areas.
The two ministers also noted continued cooperation under two agreements reached last year on trade in textiles and apparel and timber and wood products. A Sept. 26 memorandum of understanding aims to prevent the illegal transshipment of textiles and apparel through Indonesia to the U.S. through measures such as customs cooperation, identification of manufacturers and joint verification visits. On Nov. 16 the two countries signed an MOU designed to combat illegal logging and associated trade and to help ensure that Indonesia’s legally-produced timber and wood products continue to have access to markets in the U.S. and elsewhere. Since then there have been discussions on specific activities that will be funded with the $1 million the U.S. has already dedicated to the MOU, such as remote sensing of illegal logging activities and enhancing partnerships with nongovernmental organizations and the private sector.
The TIFA talks covered a wide range of other bilateral issues as well, the press release stated, including investment, intellectual property, services, customs, transshipment and agriculture. Schwab and Pangestu exchanged views on Indonesia’s new investment law and the Indonesian government’s ongoing anti-corruption campaign, which the U.S. government strongly supports. In addition, Indonesia noted its intention to respect World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) guidelines in determining market access for U.S. beef.
