Chile and Indonesia sign trade deal

Mon 26/02/2018 by Richard Wilkinson

One upshot of the recently signed trade agreements between Chile and Indonesian should be a massive influx of Chilean fruit onto the supermarkets shelves of the world’s fourth most populous country. In 2016/17, 8,649 tons of Chilean fresh produce was imported, which constituted an 82% rise compared to the previous season. Currently, a 5% tariff is imposed on most fruit imports to Indonesia. Chilean fruit exporters are also not able to ship their fruit through the port of Jakarta, meaning they arrive up to 1,000 km from the main cities. This adds costs and reduces fruit quality. With the new agreements in place, Chile’s fruit exports to Indonesia could triple over the coming years.
