Australia-United States Relations

Australia has long been a close friend and security ally of the United States. The alliance not only serves our strategic interests but is a relationship based on genuine affinity and affection between our people. The alliance is one of great depth and strength supported by a shared spirit and attitude. The United States is Australia’s largest destination and source of foreign investment, one of our top merchandise trading partners, and our largest two-way services trading partner. Our trade and investment links are deepening under the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement (FTA).
