Trade

The Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) entered into force on 1 January 2005. TAFTA has facilitated increased two-way trade and investment, improved business mobility, increased transparency, encouraged international best practice, and promoted bilateral cooperation in a range of areas including customs procedures, government procurement, competition policy and intellectual property protection. [1]

Trade is significant between the two nations. In 2007, two-way merchandise trade was worth more than A$12.3 billion.

The Agreement will result in Thai tariffs on virtually all goods imported from Australia being eliminated by 1 January 2010. [2]
