Business Environment

As a member of the G-20 and a powerhouse within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Indonesia's role at the multilateral level continues to grow. The country is Canada's largest trading partner and top destination for investment in ASEAN. Despite its increasing influence, infrastructure continues to be a pressing need and has prevented the country from realizing its full economic potential. Commodities play a big role in the country's economy, with Indonesia being one of the world's leading exporters of palm oil, tin, rubber and coal. The recently elected government  has announced plans to rebalance the economy away from commodities and towards manufacturing. This shift, combined with Indonesia's large, increasingly urban population and rising consumer class is expected to result in increased opportunity and investment.
