Mr. Morrison was greeted with a red carpet and a black BMW equipped with custom license plates from "AUSTRALIA".

Morrison was received at the international airport by the president of the Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board, Thomas Trikasih Lembong.

Australian-style, the new leader shook hands with Lembong and said "G & # 39; day".

Mr. Widodo and Mr. Morrison will enjoy the tea and discuss a long-awaited free trade agreement with the country, according to SBS.

The agreement is almost complete and opens a bidirectional relationship with the country.

There will be opportunities for farmers, students and manufacturers.

"For many years, the relationship has been described as underestimated," Indonesian Business Council President Phil Turtle told reporters in Jakarta on Thursday.

"There is a great opportunity now to have this agreement as a starting point to try and do much better than we have been."

Despite the recent change in the Australian leader, Turtle said it would not affect the negotiations.

Mr. Morrison told reporters before the flight: "We are a government that believes in commerce because commerce creates jobs. We are a pro-business government. "
