- Stronger medicine monopolies: It is not clear whether Australia will pursue TPP-like proposals.
- ISDS: It is not clear whether there will be ISDS provisions similar to those in the TPP.
- Movement of temporary workers: Indonesia is likely to want expanded access for temporary workers in Australia.
