Indonesia is Canada’s largest export market in the Association of South Eastern Nations (ASEAN) region. Indonesia is also the top destination for Canadian FDI in ASEAN. The sovereign rating of Indonesia was upgraded to investment grade by major rating agencies in 2012. Upgrading and developing the infrastructure in the country is top priority for the Indonesian Government as infrastructure deficit has been identified as a major impediment to Indonesia’s economic growth. Indonesia is resource rich and a leading producer of thermal coal, tin, nickel and LNG. Regulations governing foreign ownership of mining properties and the requirement to set up smelting facilities to process and refine mineral ores in Indonesia are being enforced by the government. Prohibition on the export of unprocessed mineral ores has come into effect in 2014. Working with local partners such as agents or distributors is an effective way to gain entry into this market.
