I am delighted to announce that Australian businesses and farmers will now have more export opportunities after the Morrison Liberal Government passed legislation for new free trade agreements with Indonesia, Hong Kong and Peru.

With 1 in 5 Australian jobs related to trade, these deals will create even more Australian jobs as well as boost our exports and help businesses to grow.

The Morrison Liberal Government is committed to pursuing our ambitious trade agenda of ensuring around 90% of Australia’s exports are covered by free trade agreements, which will lower tariffs for Australian exporters so their products can be more competitive overseas.

Through new trade deals with Indonesia, Hong Kong and Peru we are providing better market access and more export opportunities for Aussie businesses and farmers.

I am proud to be a member of the Morrison Liberal Government that will deliver free trade agreements that will open doors and deliver benefits for Australian exporters across a range of sectors, provide better market access, increase Australian exports, help to boost our economy and create more Australian jobs.
