Se algo é ruim para você, você faz acordo? Voluntariamente, não. Bem, os governos do Japão e da Indonésia acabam de iniciar um FTA (Free Trade Agreement).
Under the two countries’ FTA framework, which the two leaders signed in the evening, Indonesia will cut tariffs on about 90 percent of Japanese imports from the current level of roughly 30 percent, while Japan will lift tariffs on about 93 percent of Indonesian import levies, which are set at around 70 percent at present.
The levies on rice and plywood will be retained.
Under the FTA, which Japan is formally calling an economic partnership agreement, Indonesia will have to swiftly notify Japan of any energy export curbs in the event of rising domestic demand.
Under this scenario, Indonesia would hold talks and cooperate on ways for Japan to secure long-term energy contracts before negotiating with other countries.
The Indonesia FTA will mark the first time Japan has reached an accord with another country that includes a clause to ensure stable energy supplies.
In response to Japan’s labor shortage, Tokyo agreed to accept nurses and care-workers from Indonesia. Japan may also accept hotel staff.
Once the accord is finalized, Indonesia will become the second nation to dispatch workers under a trade pact, after the Philippines.
É isto aí.
