Australian exports are booming under the trade agreements the Coalition concluded with Japan, China and Korea.
The agreements have opened up export opportunities across the Australian economy including in agriculture, in minerals and energy, and in a wide range of manufactured products and services.
These landmark export agreements are creating more Australian jobs both in our cities and in regional areas.
The Coalition launched a seminar program in 2015 that takes trade expertise directly to businesses across the country to help Australian businesses benefit from the preferential market access these deals deliver.
Today marked a milestone in the program with the 70th seminar held at Brisbane City Hall.
The seminars provide information for businesses already exporting, or those looking to break into our lucrative export markets.
The Turnbull Government recognises the need to ensure all business, including small and medium sized enterprises, understand the opportunities offered by these trade agreements and are provided the tools to translate this knowledge into growth for their businesses and more Australian jobs.
The next round of seminars will be in Albury, NSW, and Wangaratta, Victoria, in mid-April.
