Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita led a trade mission to Spain and Switzerland on Monday to next Thursday. This trade mission aims to finalize Indonesian negotiations - European Free Trade Association Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IEFTA-CEPA) together with the Federal Councilor / Swiss Economic Minister Johann N. Schneider Ammann.


"This is not only targeting  Spanish-Swiss market, but also the EU EFTA market and global markets," Minister Enggar said


According to Minister Enggar, the IEFTA-CEPA negotiations began in 2010 and up to now have taken place 15 times. The last round was held on 27-31 August 2018 in Yogyakarta.


IEFTA-CEPA is believed to be able to open up more broad market access for Indonesia to the four EFTA member countries, both for goods, services, investment and economic cooperation.


"One of Indonesia's trade strategies in facing a world of uncertainty is to accelerate trade agreements," explained Minister Enggar.


On a visit to Madrid, Minister Enggar will be the keynote speaker at the European Palm Oil Conference (EPOC) 2018. Nasdem Party politicians will also hold bilateral meetings with Spain's Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism Maria Reyes Maroto Illera.


"Indonesia will discuss the development of the EU CEPA, in addition to bilateral issues between the two countries," said Minister Enggar.


The Indonesian delegation consists of representatives of the palm oil association, and business actors engaged in the field of oil palm, textiles and textile products, paper and pulp, coffee, jewelry, copper crafts, and paper products.


Until October 2018, the Ministry of Trade has succeeded in carrying out eight trade missions by generating transaction / potential transactions worth USD10.2 billion.


Indonesia's trade with EFTA in 2017 was recorded at USD2.4 billion with a balance of surplus for Indonesia of USD 22 million.


Indonesia's exports to EFTA countries amounted to USD 1.31 billion, while imports from EFTA were valued at USD 1.09 billion. Indonesia's main export products to EFTA are jewelry, optical devices, gold, telephone devices, and essential oils.


While Indonesia's imports from EFTA are turbo jets, medicines, fertilizers, and industrial raw material mixtures.


The total trade between Indonesia and Spain in 2017 was worth USD2.51 billion, with a trade balance surplus for Indonesia worth USD1.51 billion. Indonesia's exports were valued at USD2.01 billion, while Indonesia's imports were recorded at USD496.01 million.


In 2018 in the January-July period, trade between the two countries was recorded at USD1.79 billion with a surplus trade balance position for Indonesia worth USD970.99 million.


Indonesia's export period was valued at USD1.38 billion, up 14.25 percent over the same period in 2017, while Indonesia's imports from Spain were valued at USD408.20 million

“Ini tidak hanya mengincar pasar Spanyol-Swiss, tapi juga pasar EFTA Uni Eropa dan pasar global,” ujar Menteri Enggar dalam pernyataannya, Selasa.


Menurut Menteri Enggar perundingan IEFTA-CEPA dimulai pada 2010 dan hingga kini sudah berlangsung 15 kali. Putaran terakhir dilaksanakan pada 27-31 Agustus 2018 di Yogyakarta.

Delegasi Indonesia terdiri dari perwakilan asosiasi sawit, dan pelaku usaha yang bergerak di bidang sawit, tekstil dan produk tekstil, kertas dan bubur kertas, kopi, perhiasan, kerajinan tembaga, dan produk kertas.


Hingga Oktober 2018, Kementerian Perdagangan telah berhasil melakukan delapan misi dagang dengan menghasilkan transaksi/potensial transaksi senilai USD10,2 miliar.
