Development partnership with Indonesia

Australia and Indonesia are close neighbours, strategic partners and friends. The Australia-Indonesia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership has elevated our bilateral relationship and sets an ambitious agenda for deeper and broader cooperation across all facets of our partnership. We are committed to working together to build a prosperous and stable region.

Given the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on our region and globally, we remain focussed on delivering on our commitments under the Australian Government's development policy - Partnerships for Recovery. Australia and Indonesia have a long and proud history of supporting each other in times of need, and we have a shared commitment to work across our governments, including through the development partnership, towards mutual recovery.

Since the start of the pandemic, Australia has adapted its development partnership to support Indonesia’s response to, and recovery from, the challenges posed by COVID-19. Our approach is outlined in the Indonesia COVID-19 Development Response Plan and structured around the three pillars of: health security, stability, and economic recovery. Across our work we are focusing on the most vulnerable, including women and people with disabilities.

We work in partnership to support Indonesia to maximise the effectiveness of its efforts to recover hard-won economic and human development gains and return to its pre-COVID development trajectory. Our partnership will remain responsive and adaptive to Indonesia’s priorities beyond the pandemic.

Further information about Australia’s development partnership in Indonesia is available on the DFAT Indonesia country information page.
