Free Trade Agreements help provide new growth opportunities for Australian businesses.

Free Trade Agreements help provide new growth opportunities for Australian businesses.

Comprehensive Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) strengthen Australia’s economic relationships, and provide Australians with better access to key trading markets across a range of business interests, including goods, services and investment. They provide businesses with a competitive edge in new markets.

Commitments, eligibility and technical requirements vary between FTAs. A number of Government resources are available to help exporters take advantage of the opportunities under Australia’s FTAs.

Understanding Free Trade Agreements

The Australian Government is running an Australia-wide outreach program to provide practical information on how to maximise benefits from Australia’s FTAs. Register for an FTA seminar near you.

Our website also provides detailed information on FTA markets including doing business, news, insights, opportunities, events, visiting markets, and Austrade assistance. Visit business.gov.au to find further business support for exporters.

You can read more about each agreement at the Department of Foreign Affairsand Trade (DFAT) website, where you will find detailed guides including the full text of the agreements, helpful FTA information and factsheets and an FTA Portal for searching tariff outcomes under FTAs.
