ChAFTA Post-Implementation Review: Conclusion
A post-implementation review (PIR) prepared by DFAT on the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement has been assessed by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) as compliant with the Australian Government’s best practice regulation requirements.
The PIR concluded that ChAFTA has liberalised economic flows between China and Australia through reductions in barriers to trade; increased Australian exports of travel and other services; and increased Australian goods exports for a majority of products receiving ChAFTA tariff preferences.
The PIR can be found on the OBPR website: China-Australia Free Trade Agreement Post Implementation Review)
