Malaysia-Australia Free Trade Agreement

MAFTA Factsheet: Temporary Movement of Skilled Personnel

15 January 2013

The Malaysia-Australia Free Trade Agreement (MAFTA) provides a strong basis for increased bilateral trade and investment with Malaysia, an important regional trading partner and neighbour. It builds on the commitments Australia and Malaysia have already made in the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand FTA (AANZFTA) to liberalise and expand the bilateral trade relationship. It provides significant market access gains for Australian producers, exporters and service supplies. It also provides for greater ease of doing business in Malaysia, making it easier both to enter and operate in the Malaysian market.
