The Indonesian FTA is a trade agreement which isn't really about trade
At a fish restaurant in rural Java, after a morning of campaigning, Indonesian President Joko Widodo had his lines prepared.
The free trade agreement (FTA) with Australia would be "more than a commercial project, it is a partnership" he told The Australian Financial Review.
That was in mid-March and the man known as Jokowi was signalling how Indonesia saw the Australian FTA, which will be sealed by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in Jakarta on Friday.
As Jokowi indicated, it's not really about trade.
