Free Trade Agreement Advocacy

The Government remains committed to increasing business awareness and use of FTAs. For example: 

  • DFAT continues to offer bespoke advocacy intended to raise business awareness and use of FTAs, including in relation to services exports;
  • the FTA Portal, a website providing businesses with easy-to-access information about goods and services export opportunities under Australia's FTAs, is being maintained and updated when new FTAs enter into force;
  • detailed online information about FTAs is being maintained and updated where necessary, including factsheets on services-related issues for businesses; and 
  • FTA email inboxes that allow SMEs and other businesses to submit FTA-related queries and have them answered by FTA experts are being maintained.
