Australia and Indonesia will promptly proceed with the plan to implement tariff reductions on key commodities, opening the way to increased trade between the two countries.

Indonesia will reduce tariffs on the import of Australian raw sugar and Australia will eliminate import duties on Indonesian herbicides and pesticides.

These measures will boost Australia's sugar industry and Indonesia's chemical industry, and provide flow-on economic benefits to both countries.

Indonesian pesticides and herbicides will be more competitive in the Australian market and offer greater choice to consumers.

Indonesia's processed food and beverage industries will benefit from lower raw sugar prices in meeting the demands of national and regional markets.

These tariff cuts reflect a shared ambition for the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA).
