Join the Australian High Commissioner to the UK, Australia’s Chief Negotiator and Austrade UK as they discuss the progress of the agreement and the potential opportunities. Hear also from two Australian exporters on the benefits of Australia’s FTAs and the opportunities for Australian goods and services in the UK.
Australia and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) launched negotiations for a free trade agreement (FTA) on 17 June 2020. Australia is seeking an ambitious and comprehensive FTA with the UK that drives increased trade, two-way investment, economic growth and job creation.
The agreement will deepen our trade and investment relationships for the benefit of Australian businesses and consumers and play an important role in our post-COVID economic recovery.
