The Indonesia Australia Business Council (IABC), like AusCham Vietnam, is a member of Australia Business Asia (ABA).

Every two years the IABC hosts a Business Conference in Indonesia and this year, it will be held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia from 15-17 November 2015.

The title of the conference is:

Business as Usual? A look at business in a new political environment.

AusCham Vietnam’s members are eligible for a discount through the Chamber’s membership of ABA (see registration form for full details of discount).

The following information on the Conference is provided by the Indonesia Australia Business Council.


The 2015 Business Conference is certainly not limited to IABC/AIBC members but it is intended to hold wider appeal to the business community.

Also invited are business persons from around Asia who may belong to one of the Australian Business Groups operating in Asia.

This year’s Conference is the 33rd in the series of business conferences (held over one or more days) in either Indonesia or Australia. It will be held on 15-17 November in the historic and academic city of Yogyakarta.

At this year’s conference we ask what if anything has changed for business, given recent significant political and social developments in Indonesia, or whether it is business as usual. We are looking at these developments in general, how they are impacting on the critical infrastructure sector, and will hear how some particular businesses are faring.

We work within the regional beehive framework of trade and investment agreements – actual or planned – and we examine where these are heading, and what they are delivering besides controversy and confusion.

The objectives of the Conference are:

  • To provide an up-to-date analysis of the political and economic landscape;
  • To reinforce the bilateral ties between Indonesia and Australia;
  • To assist all delegates to network within business and government circles and to develop strategic links;
  • To enhance awareness of the benefits of connectivity throughout Asia and the Pacific;
  • To provide practical and relevant information and contacts for organizations with existing business as well as those who are seeking to establish new business;
  • To provide an informal environment with sufficient social interaction to enable participants to benefit from each other’s experience.

The business programme is spread over two full days (Monday and Tuesday). Formalities will be kept to a minimum and the focus will be on networking to encourage stronger links. The format will be plenary sessions with keynote and panels of speakers. Specific areas of activity and development on which we will concentrate are:

  • Political and social developments
  • Economic development
  • Infrastructure
  • Trade and investment
  • Specific experiences

and we will also look at regional development. Every encouragement will be given to delegates to mingle, with opportunities provided for discussion at all times during the conference.
