Exporters quick to capitalise on Japan FTA

15 January 2016

Export sales across a variety of commodities to Japan have jumped since the Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) came into effect 12 months ago, as businesses capitalise on the opportunities it’s created, Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Robb said.

Mr Robb said wine, beef and grape-growers are among those enjoying the competitive advantage JAEPA has delivered.

“Today marks one year since the agreement with Japan came into force.  Since then, agricultural enterprises in particular have made the most of the substantial tariff cuts secured under JAEPA,” Mr Robb said.
