Free trade agreements (FTAs) are international treaties that reduce barriers to trade and investment.

Australia’s FTAs — both with individual countries and groups of countries — 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.
