Peru-Australia Free Trade Agreement (PAFTA)


Australia and Peru signed the Peru-Australia Free Trade Agreement (PAFTA) on 12 February 2018. This agreement will launch a new chapter in economic relations between Australia and Latin America.

Both countries will now follow their own domestic treaty making processes before PAFTA can enter into force. For Australia, this will include a Joint Standing Committee on Treaties (JSCOT) inquiry. The full text of the agreement will be released once the agreement has been signed.

Please visit the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website for comprehensive information on PAFTA.
