Understanding Australia’s International Trade Agreements

AUGUST 2015

 

Australia’s prosperity is more connected than ever to developments in the global economy. Our trade with the world is equivalent to 42% of our GDP – a number that has not dropped below 25% since 1900.

 

The stock of foreign investment in Australia is at record highs of A$2.8 trillion, while Australia’s investments around the world total A$2.0 trillion (2014).

 

Sustaining our performance as the world’s 12th largest economy, with the fifth highest GDP per capita will require strong international engagement.

26 May 2014 

Rohini Kappadath
