Technical Assistance II

Trade in Services (TiS) negotiations require an in-depth understanding of both parties' regulatory environment, having already identified the key market access and national treatment barriers governing trade across both negotiating parties. In this context, ARISE+ Indonesia supported the Directorate of Trade in Services Negotiation, the Ministry of Trade, to undertake six services sectors analysis in preparation for the ongoing EU-Indonesia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) negotiations. The six sectors are Higher Education, Professional Services, Maritime Transport, Environmental Services, Computer Services, and Games and Animation Services. 

The Ministry of Trade, in collaboration with ARISE+ Indonesia Technical Assistance II, is organising the third training series on Trade in Services. The training aims to strengthen the capacity of Ministry of Trade officials in TiS that will support the ongoing Indonesia-EU CEPA negotiation. 

The third series of training will present the outcomes of the six services sectors reports, presenting the findings and negotiating approaches. In addition, the workshop will have a session on approaches to trade in service negotiations by the EU in previous trade agreements, as well as a dedicated session on the way forward for preparing CEPA negotiations with the EU in these six service sectors.

Time: 09:00-16:00 Western Indonesian Time (GMT+7)
Venue: Jakarta (Hybrid format for selected speakers)
