ASEAN now! the place to grow.
As Australia's closest neighbour and largest trading partner, the ASEAN* region offers considerable opportunity for Australian exporters and investors. 
Business confidence is improving with economic growth across ASEAN member countries predicted to be well above the global average in the coming years.
In addition, business engagement is set to increase from 1 January 2010, when the ASEAN, Australia and New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA) comes into effect. As Australia’s most comprehensive FTA, this agreement will give you greater access to a market of 600 million consumers, with a combined GDP of A$3.2 trillion. It will significantly raise Australia’s profile throughout ASEAN member countries, create direct trade benefits (through tariff reductions and greater investment opportunities) and provide certainty in the business environment.
