Opportunities under JAEPA
Surfing Australia’s current, next and future growth waves
The Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA), which took effect on 15 January 2015, represents a significant potential opportunity for both Australian and Japanese producers, exporters, investors, service providers and consumers.
The JAEPA is fundamentally aligned with some of the key current and future growth sectors in the Australian economy, as identified in Deloitte’s Building the Lucky Country paper, Positioning for Prosperity: Catching the next wave. These opportunities can be broadly grouped into three categories: agribusiness, energy and natural resources, and services. This paper looks more closely at how JAEPA will effect these industry sectors.
