Free Trade Agreements Australia

The United States monitors implementation of the U.S.-Australia FTA closely and meets regularly with Australia under the FTA to discuss the functioning of the agreement and address specific trade issues.  The Joint Committee set up under the FTA supervises implementation of the Agreement and review of the overall trade and investment relationship.  The agreement also establishes committees on goods, agriculture, sanitary and phytosanitary matters, and financial services as well as subcommittees on labor and environment, which report to the Joint Committee.
