Assistant Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Keith Pitt and Federal Member for Farrer Sussan Ley have hosted a seminar in Albury to help local businesses access Australia’s free trade agreements (FTAs) with Korea, Japan and China.

Mr Pitt said Australia’s North Asia FTAs were creating new opportunities for businesses across the country.

“The Australian Government has secured unprecedented access to more than a billion potential customers for Australian goods and services through our FTAs with Korea, Japan and China,” Mr Pitt said.

“I strongly encourage small- and medium-sized business owners in the Albury area to attend the seminar and hear first-hand how they can make the most of these landmark agreements.”

“Our FTAs have brought increased market access to three of the world’s most dynamic economies and laid the foundation for stronger flows of two-way investment.

Ms Ley said local businesses will already have heard about these FTAs, but what can they actually do for your company; where are opportunities for you to benefit? Two hour sessions like this will help you work that out,” she said.

Seminars continue to be held nationwide to build awareness of Australia’s North Asia FTAs and ensure they yield their full potential for businesses and our country.
