About free trade agreements

Free trade agreements (FTAs) are a vital part of Australia’s continued economic growth.

FTAs are treaties between two or more countries designed to reduce or eliminate certain barriers to trade and investment, and to facilitate stronger trade and commercial ties between participating countries.

Australia has 10 FTAs, both with individual countries and groups of countries. Australia is currently negotiating several FTAs with other countries.
