Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA)—2014 Inquiry

Submission Overview

At the outset, the Export Council of Australia (ECA) would like to commend the Australian Government for negotiating the most liberalising agreement Japan has ever concluded. On behalf of its members, and indirectly on behalf of Australia’s international trade community, the ECA makes this submission in support of JAEPA and its early entry into force in Australia.

AIBS 2014 respondents nominated Japan as the fifth top current export market for Australian companies, behind the United States, China, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Respondents also selected Japan as the sixth top market they are looking to target in the next two-years. These statistics reinforce the significance of Japan as a trading partner, providing further justification for the early entry into force of JAEPA.
