Liz Truss – 2021 Comments on Joint Economic and Trade Committee Between UK and Indonesia

The comments made by Liz Truss, the Secretary of State for International Trade, on 26 April 2021.

By 2050 Indonesia is predicted to be one of the top five economies globally. Today’s agreement sets out our ambitions to strengthen our trade and investment ties, deepen our collaboration across a range of sectors, from financial services and technology to renewables and open new markets for UK businesses.

We want to strengthen trade links with like-minded countries like Indonesia who share our belief in democracy and the international rules-based system and help strengthen Global Britain’s dynamic partnerships with ASEAN and Southeast Asia.
