Australian grains look to Indonesia wins

(Posted on 15/10/19)

GrainGrowers in Australia has welcomed the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties (JSCOT) recommendation that the

Parliament ratifies the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement

(IA-CEPA), citing the significant opportunities it brings to the Australian grains industry.

GrainGrowers now calls on bipartisan support for the agreement and for the Australian

parliament to swiftly pass legislation to allow the trade agreement to enter into force.

“Indonesia is Australia’s largest wheat market with annual trade volumes typically around 4.2

million tonnes, valued at around $1.3 billion. The agreement includes a new quota of 500,000

tonnes of Australian feed grain to Indonesia per year, growing at 5% per annum.” said Brett

Hosking, GrainGrowers Chairman.

“This feed grain quota is equivalent to 12,000 b-double truckloads of grains and will create new

opportunities for Australian farmers as well as supporting growth and development for

Indonesia’s food manufacturing, stockfeed and livestock sectors.”

A critical component of IA-CEPA is the development of a grains-specific economic cooperation

initiative, the Australia-Indonesia Grains Partnership. The partnership will provide technical,

economic, and social programs to allow the grains and agrifood industries in both countries to

“With the release of the Australian Government’s report today it is now imperative that the

funding commitment for the Australia-Indonesia Grains Partnership by the Australian

Government is forthcoming. This is an initiative that will enable our growers to work with their

Indonesian colleagues and is critical for our businesses.” said Hosking.

The partnership will ensure that Indonesian stockfeed and livestock industries have the right

technical support when using Australian feed grains such as barley. This means that Indonesian

livestock sectors maximise their productivity when using Australian feed grains.
