International Economics is providing support to relevant ministries and agencies of Indonesia that are directly involved in or supporting/preparing papers or analysis for CEPA negotiation and its implementation via an overseas capacity building mission. The mission will provide an insight into best practices of European and regional (ASEAN) institutions involved in Trade Policy development, including FTA negotiations and implementation at the national and regional level, thus allowing participants to develop a meaningful dialogue on trade policy and trade negotiations topics, to observe how European and ASEAN institutions fulfill their mandates, as well as to widen their international network.

The ultimate objective of the project is to provide technical assistance for the implementation of the ARISE Plus Indonesia programme aimed at enhancing Indonesia’s capacity to boost trade performance and competitiveness.
