Thursday, 13 June 2019

Indonesian Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita along with Deputy Foreign Minister of Trade in Chile Rodrigo Yáñez Benítez exchanged an Instrument of Ratification (IoR) Indonesia-Chile Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IC-CEPA) on Tuesday (11/6/2019) at the Indonesian Ministry of Trade, Jakarta.

 

"The implementation of the IC-CEPA is a very historic moment. Besides being the first trade agreement with the South American country, IC-CEPA will also open the door for Indonesia's export products in the South American region more easily. "Chile's strategic geographical location will make Chile the country that connects Indonesian export products in South America," Enggar explained.

 

IoR exchange is  important legal procedure before the entry into force of IC-CEPA. In accordance with the mandate agreed in the agreement, IC-CEPA will take effect 60 days after the IoR exchange, on August 10, 2019.

 

IC-CEPA was signed by the two governments on December 14, 2017 in Santiago, Chile. Through IC-CEPA, the two countries will get preference rates for each other to export to markets.

 

After nearly 18 months of ratification in each country, on June 11, 2019 the process was officially completed by the two countries. For Indonesia, this process was carried out through the issuance of Presidential Regulation No. 11 of 2019, concerning the Ratification of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Indonesia and the Government of the Republic of Chile.

 

Through IC-CEPA, 89.6 percent of Chile's tariff posts will be eliminated for Indonesian products entering the Chilean market, while Indonesia will remove 86.1 percent of its tariff posts for imported products from Chile. The main products of Indonesia that receive preferences include: palm oil and its derivatives, paper and pulp, fisheries, food and beverages, automotive products, footwear, furniture, jewelry, sorbitol, textile products, and others.

 

In accordance with the agreement, after the implementation of IC-CEPA was implemented, the two countries will continue negotiations to the next stage, such as trade in the service sector and investment. "After the goods tariff agreement, the next stage is negotiations in the services and investment fields, because IC-CEPA is indeed done in stages. For the deadline, it will be discussed further through the IC-CEPA Joint Committee, which will meet according to a joint agreement, "concluded the Trade Minister.
