Malaysia/Australia Free Trade Agreement

Australia and Malaysia commenced negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement in April 2005. The agreement was signed in May 2012.

Australia has agreed to give tariff-free access to all Malaysians goods from the implementation date, and Malaysia will give immediate tariff-free access for some products, and for 99% of all goods by 2020. The main advantage for Australian industry is that Australian car parts and large cars will have tariff-free access to Malaysia from the implementation date. Some Malaysian restrictions on investment in private education, telecoms and insurance have also been reduced or removed.
