The Peru-Australia Free Trade Agreement (PAFTA) commenced a new era in economic integration and trade opportunities between Australia and Peru in February 2020. PAFTA launched a new chapter in economic relations between Australia and Latin America.
PAFTA supports Australia’s goal of capturing the gains of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and provides a gateway to Latin America. PAFTA will strengthen our economic relationships and help facilitate value chains between the Americas and Asia. Peru is a growing market for Australian goods and services exporters. In 2016, two-way trade with Peru was worth AUD$590 million, up 51.2 per cent from the previous year. PAFTA will provide Australian businesses with an opportunity to expand and deepen our engagement with the dynamic markets of Latin America.
Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has created a guide to using PAFTA to export and import.
Benefits from PAFTA:
Tariffs on beef were eliminated within five years to ensure Australian beef farmers have duty free access to the Peruvian market at the same time as US farmers.
More sugar market access for Australian sugar farmers than Peru has provided any sugar exporting country in the last twenty years.
Australian dairy farmers will obtain historic new access to Peru.
Immediate duty free access for Australian wine, sheep meat, most horticulture products, kangaroo meat and wheat.
Immediate duty free access for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, paper and paperboard.
The best services commitments that Peru has offered any country, creating new opportunities for Australian mining service providers.
