Canada-Indonesia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement

On June 20, 2021, Canada and Indonesia launched negotiations towards a Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA). Respecting the transparency requirements under the Policy on Tabling Treaties in Parliament, the Government tabled its Notice of Intent to enter into CEPA negotiations with Indonesia in the House of Commons on June 21, 2021, and tabled its negotiating objectives on November 24, 2021. Canada and Indonesia plan to hold a first round of negotiations in early 2022.

The Government of Canada is committed to enhancing our commercial relations with large, fast-growing markets, such as Indonesia. A CEPA with Indonesia would help establish a more transparent and predictable environment for trade and investment, and create new opportunities for Canadian goods and services in Southeast Asia’s largest economy.

From January 9 to February 23, 2021, the Government of Canada conducted public consultations to seek the views of Canadians on a CEPA with Indonesia. A summary of feedback received was published on May 31, 2021.
