Trade with Australia
The government has announced a major breakthrough in our negotiations with Australia, taking us one step closer towards a UK-Australia trade deal.
As we look to continue to rebuild our economy and forge new partnerships around the world – a trade deal with Australia offers brilliant opportunities for UK companies to benefit from access to new markets.
This deal will deliver for every corner of the UK and our economy. This is a win-win for both our nations. The securing of this deal will support jobs across the country and help us emerge stronger from the pandemic with a strengthened partnership with our Australian allies.
the government will continue to seize the new opportunities our exit from the EU has brought - delivering lower tariffs on great British products and new access to exciting markets across the globe.
