JFCC/ Lunch with Trade Minister Mari Pangestu on Wednesday, April 14 at 12 PM, Intercontinental Hotel
By on Wednesday, April 14 at 12 PM, Intercontinental Hotel
Indonesia's stock market is booming, its currency is soaring and foreign investment is starting to flow, but the more Jakarta engages with the global economy the louder the calls for protectionism seem to grow.
How does Trade Minister Mari Pangestu, a respected economist and US-educated advocate of open markets, plan to juggle the often competing interests of Indonesian producers and consumers in the globalised economy? What does she say to those who fear an influx of Chinese goods after the implementation of the ASEAN-China free trade accord?
How will she reassure Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao of Indonesia's commitment to free trade when he visits later this month? Or will she seek commitments from him not to dump Chinese goods on the Indonesian market?
Bring these and any other questions you feel like asking to a special lunch with Mari Pangestu, hosted by the JFCC.
