Civil Society Statement on the EU-Indonesia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA)

19 Feb 2018


This statement has been developed jointly by Indonesian and European civil society organisations. The signatories believe that an EU-Indonesia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) must first of all be approached as a means to serve the public interest. It should ensure that trade and investments contribute to equitable and sustainable development, the preconditions for which include a healthy environment, a climate-friendly economy, gender equality, security of livelihoods and decent work for all.
