Australia has proven to be an appealing and profitable market for U.S. companies for many years. As of 2021, Australia ranks 9th in the world for U.S. exports of processed foods. Australia is an open market with minimal restrictions on imports of goods and services. The process of opening has increased productivity, stimulated growth, and made the economy more flexible and dynamic. The U.S. – Australia Free Trade Agreement provides some advantages for U.S. products, which are well regarded as high quality with good value.
