The United States of America (US) remains the world’s largest economy, with an annual gross domestic product (GDP) of over US$18 trillion (nominal) and a population of over 323 million people. The US is one of Australia’s most important trade and investment partners: the largest foreign investor in Australia, Australia’s largest foreign investment destination, and the fourth largest destination for Australian exports.
The US is a leading engine of innovation and a critical research and development (R&D) partner for Australian businesses and institutions. The US market’s world leading consumer demand is an attractive opportunity for Australian exporters, but is highly competitive and diverse. Australia enjoys considerable market access advantages under the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA).
