EU-Indonesia CEPA Negotiations
The EU is negotiating a Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) with Indonesia with the objective to facilitate and create new market access, increase trade between the EU and Indonesia as well as to expand direct investment.
The EU officially launched negotiations with Indonesia on 18 July 2016.
The 9th round of negotiations was held in Brussels from 2 to 6 December 2019. The 10th round is planned for March 2020 in Indonesia.
Indonesia is the sixth country in the ASEAN region to start negotiations for a bilateral free trade agreement (FTA) with the EU, after Singapore (2010), Malaysia (2010), Vietnam (2012), Thailand (2013) and the Philippines (2015). So far, the EU has completed negotiations for bilateral agreements with two of them: Singapore (2014) and Vietnam (2015). Bilateral FTAs between the EU and ASEAN countries will serve as building blocks towards a future EU-ASEAN agreement, which remains the EU's ultimate objective.
