The UK-Australia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) was signed by the Secretary of State for International Trade on 16 December.  The agreement is the first fully new trade agreement that the UK has negotiated as an independent trading nation.

Today I am publishing the Welsh Government’s assessment of the UK-Australia FTA on our Trade Policy webpages. UK-Australia Free Trade Agreement

The report provides commentary and analysis on the potential impacts of the trade agreement on Wales.  I hope the Wales-focused analysis and information in the report will aid scrutiny of the agreement by Members of the Senedd, business and the public.
