Katalis’s goal is to maximise the benefits of IA-CEPA, support trade and investment, improve market access, and promote inclusive economic growth in Indonesia. The primary objective is to ensure the efficient and effective implementation of IA-CEPA to increase two-way trade and investment that is broad based and inclusive. Through a “Collaborative Hub”, Katalis will work with Australian and Indonesian partners, combining sound trade and development practice by supporting Indonesia to maximise the benefits of IA-CEPA, addressing regulatory challenges (through technical assistance), while resourcing innovative industry engagement in sectors of mutual interest, and by investing in standards, skills and private sector development in new areas.
