North Asia Free Trade Agreements Training Session for SMEs - Opportunities for the Australian Financial Services Sector in Asia – Melbourne

About event:

Three newly ratified free trade agreements with Japan, South Korea and China will increase Australia’s access and exporting prospects in these key markets.

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) have been negotiated on behalf of Australian businesses by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). They have been negotiated to provide:

  • better Australian access to important markets
  • an improved competitive position for Australian exports
  • more prospects for increased two-way investment, and
  • reduced import costs for Australian businesses and consumers alike

The briefing agenda will:

  • Outline the improved market access opportunities arising from Australian recent FTA’s with Korea, Japan and China and the potential benefits for financial services companies seeking to expand in these fast growing Asian Markets.
  • Provide an update of the Asian Regional funds Passport
  • Updates on proposed Government FinTech regulatory `sandbox’ initiatives to support industry development
  • Networking opportunities
