Australia has 15 Free Trade Agreements in force with 26 countries and is energetically pursuing more. And that's exciting news for businesses in Australia. 

These agreements aim to reduce or eliminate barriers to trade and investment between nations, opening up opportunities for your business. So what do you need to know to identify and leverage their potential? 

The "free" in the FTA suggests a laissez-faire approach to trade and investment, but FTAs don't mean the abandonment of all duties, taxes and other controls. Rather, they are complex agreements that take into account different types of products and investments.  

Each FTA is unique. But if you are looking to export or import from a country, having an FTA in place is a great starting point. They can help level the playing field for Australian businesses, allowing them to compete globally, and make trade more reliable and transparent.
