Other FTAs with RCEP participating countries
Other FTAs between and among RCEP participating parties will co-exist with RCEP. Businesses will be able to decide which FTA they will use, based on a range of factors such as the tariffs and associated rules of origin applied. Many Australian export businesses currently make these assessments, for example, between SAFTA or TAFTA and AANZFTA.
