GEG’s Director Emily Jones led a three day executive training programme on international trade for 35 senior Indonesian civil servants from 23-26 October in Bogor, Indonesia.

Indonesia involved with a series of important trade negotiations including with China and the European Union, and it is weighing up whether to negotiate to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), if the TPP goes ahead. The highly interactive course provided participants with a framework and insights on how to conduct international trade negotiations, including identifying national interests, and strategy and tactics that can be used to shape outcomes. Participants deepened their understanding of the political economy of trade, the evolving governance of the global trading system, and discussed the key elements of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and likely implications for Indonesia. The course was convened by the Indonesian Coordinating Ministry for the Economy in partnership with the Government of Australia.
