Jumpstart Your Product Export Sales to Australia

Australia has proven to be an appealing and profitable market for U.S. companies for many years. Australia is an open market with minimal restrictions on imports of goods and services.  The process of opening up 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. Australia’s economy continues to expand and the market presents an excellent opportunity for U.S. exporters.
