A new free-trade agreement signed between Australia and Indonesia will give the state exporters greater access to 270 million consumers, Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources Richard Colbeck has said.
Senator Colbeck said the free-trade agreement would allow 99 per cent of exports to be duty-free or under some other sort of improved arrangement.
He said the agreement would particularly benefit those in the fresh produce, dairy and aquaculture industries.
According to Tasmania's State Growth department, the value of exports to Indonesia was $189.5 million in 2017-18.
This figure represented a growth of $152.1 million in 2013-14 which was followed by two years of a decline in the value in exports.
Indonesia is the state's seventh largest trading partner.
