Indonesia and the European Union (EU) have a long-standing cooperation on sustainable management of forest resources.

To date, Indonesia is one of the largest exporters of timber and wood products to the EU. In 2013, Indonesia and the EU signed the historic Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade-Voluntary Partnership Agreement (FLEGT-VPA), which assures that all timber products comply with national laws on environmental, social, and economic aspects.
