Home/News/JAEPA enters into force

The Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement entered into force on 15 January 2015, opening new market opportunities with Australia’s second-largest trading partner.

The Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) delivers substantial benefits for the Australian economy, making it easier to do business with Japan, our second-largest trading partner. JAEPA is the most liberalising bilateral trade agreement that Japan has ever concluded, providing Australian exporters, importers, investors and producers a significant advantage over their international competitors.
