Event: Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement Briefing

Organiser: Canberra Business Chamber

Delivered in partnership between Canberra Business Chamber and ACT Government, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade will provide an information briefing session on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), the largest trade liberalising agreement concluded for over 20 years.

The TPP is a regional free trade agreement between Australia and 11 other Asia-Pacific countries - Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam.  Australia’s exports of goods and services to these 11 countries were worth around $107 billion in 2014-15 – a third of Australia’s total exports.  In 2014, Australian investment in 11 TPP countries was 45 per cent of all outward investment. 

When the TPP enters into force, it will provide Canberra Region Businesses with new market access opportunities for goods and services exporters, as well as new investment opportunities, in a region that will become increasingly important in the future to Australia.

Morning tea provided.
