For stakeholders

The Australia-Hong Kong Free Trade Agreement (A-HKFTA) has the potential to deliver significant opportunities to Australian businesses.

Hong Kong is an attractive export destination for Australia. In 2016, Hong Kong was our eighth largest goods and services market, with Australian exports worth $12.5 billion, representing a five-year trend growth rate of 16.9 per cent.

Hong Kong presents significant opportunities for Australian businesses, including in the industries of clothing and fashion, and cosmetics. Australia is an important source of high-quality food and beverages for Hong Kong, including wine and seafood. Service export market opportunities include FinTech and health and aged care.
