Australia and the United States: Trade and the Multinationals in a New Era

Released on 23 June 2005

Overview

The Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement is creating significant opportunities for businesses in Australia. Working with the US multinationals is one way for Australian companies, large and small, to realise the benefits of the free trade agreement.

This report is about the importance of US multinationals to the further internationalisation of the Australian economy, not just directly but also indirectly through the business and business practices they bring to their local supply networks. Many Australian companies, including small-to-medium enterprises, have developed successful business with the multinationals. Many have also been able to develop export business through the overseas networks and connections of the multinationals.
