Asialink Business, the Australia Indonesia Business Council and Herbert Smith Freehills are delighted to invite you to attend

State of the Nation: Indonesia
Indonesia is the world’s third-largest democracy and the largest economy in Southeast Asia. In recent years, Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP) has been growing at more than five percent annually on the back of a stable democratic government, open trade and investment policies, increasing domestic consumption, abundant natural resources and a growing skilled workforce.

Profound changes in Indonesia’s economy and society in recent decades have combined to make it an increasingly attractive destination for foreign businesses. And Australia, as a close regional neighbour, is well positioned to take advantage.

Date: Tuesday 2nd May, 2017
Time: 5.15pm arrival for a 5.30pm sharp start, concluding at 7.30pm
Venue: Herbert Smith Freehills, 42/101 Collins St, Melbourne VIC 3000
