China is Australia's largest two-way trading partner in goods and services (valued at $150.0 billion in 2015-16, up 4.4 per cent on the previous year).
China is our largest source of imports, valued at $64.1 billion in 2015-16.
The China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) entered into force on 20 December 2015. The Agreement has already enhanced the growing trade and investment relationship between our highly complementary economies.
Importers can now benefit from the ChAFTA agreement as well.
Increasing numbers of Australian businesses are importing from the Chinese market with great success. However – like all cross border commercial activities – the benefits of doing business in China are coupled with risks. These risks can, however, be mitigated through education and preparation before looking to import from the China market.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
