The federal government’s Free Trade Agreement Portal has been awarded Best Applications Development at the Australian Government ICT Awards.
This online tool, launched earlier this year, helps small and medium businesses understand more about Australia’s free trade agreements with major Asian trading partners China, Japan and Korea.
The portal provides free and accurate information on tariffs under each of the FTAs. Users have access to a step-by-step guide on how to win in these important markets.
The recent ICT award recognises the value of the FTA Portal to the Australian business community, said Trade Minister Steven Ciobo.
In the recent budget the Government announced it would invest $1.8 million to expand the Portal to cover all of Australia’s FTAs.
