The Global Trade War Has Kicked Off: Impact on Indonesia’s Business, Global Trade and Investment

Date: 31 Jan 2019
6:00pm - 9:00pm


Indonesia has taken a positive approach to global competition, preferring to engage through consultation and to stay away from trade wars. However, the country and other developing economies could be adversely affected by the intensifying trade tensions. At the 2018 Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Group (WBG), President Jokowi called for greater cooperation and coordination in working toward a common goal to counter the negative impacts of trade wars, technology disruptions and market uncertainties. Is Indonesia prepared to withstand these impacts?

We bring together leading academics and practitioners to discuss how businesses and investors in Indonesia can continue to navigate successfully the economic system.
