Indonesia visit to drive electric vehicle cooperation

Minister for Industry and Science Ed Husic will visit Jakarta to further cooperation and collaboration with Indonesia on battery technologies and electric vehicles.

Minister Husic’s two-day trip to Indonesia will reaffirm Australia’s strong bilateral relationship with our close neighbour, particularly our shared interest in growing the global electric vehicle industry. 

While in Jakarta, Minister Husic is scheduled to hold a series of bilateral meetings with senior Ministerial counterparts from the Indonesian Government. 

Like Australia, Indonesia is focused on developing and diversifying its clean energy supply chains and strengthening bilateral trade and investment links.

This visit will again advance opportunities for collaboration with Indonesia on those efforts, as agreed by Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and President Joko Widodo.

Quotes attributable to the Hon Ed Husic, Minister for Industry and Science:

“We are determined as a government to keep building up our relationship with Indonesia.

“Indonesia shares our drive to grow strong and diverse clean energy supply chains, while building our respective battery manufacturing and critical mineral processing industries.

“My visit to Jakarta will enable our countries to forge further collaboration in growing the electric vehicle ecosystem, as well as our broader economic interests.”
