The AANZFTA entered into force on 1 January 2010. The ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Area (AANZFTA) is an agreement encompassing one of the most dynamic economic regions in the world.
AANZFTA is Australia’s first multi-country FTA. It is the first time Australia and New Zealand have been involved jointly in negotiating an FTA with third countries. It was the first time ASEAN has embarked on FTA negotiations covering all sectors including goods, services, investment and intellectual property simultaneously. This makes it the most comprehensive trade agreement that ASEAN has ever negotiated.
