The China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) entered into force on 20 December 2015, providing Australian businesses with unprecedented access to the China market. Made possible by a generous grant from The Australian Government, the Australia China Business Council, in collaboration with the Export Council of Australia (ECA), are taking to all corners of Australia to provide Australian SMEs with the expertise and practical knowledge for how firms can access the tariff reductions and wider benefits under the landmark agreement.

*ticket prices reflect the subsidy provided by the Australian Government through the Free Trade Agreement Training Provider Grant Program that has reduced ticket costs by 50% for each attendee. The full value of the training is $190.

The ChaFTA Training Program will open with a morning workshop hosted by the Export Council of Australia, focussing on the technical aspects of ChAFTA such as:

  • the role of FTAs and their benefit to Australian companies;
  • the role of FTAs in targeting new markets and opportunities;
  • the practicalities of classifying products and Certificate of Origin requirements; and
  • a check-list of items to consider before entering China

ACBC will lead the second session that will focus on the practical side of doing business with China, such as:

  • the latest business trends and China market analysis;
  • invaluable Case Study experience of doing business with China; and
  • the cultural nuances of doing business with China.

This program will include morning tea and lunch, and will provide opportunities for Q&A and networking.
