Australia Free Trade Agreement

Many people on the Australian film and television scene have expressed concern about the impact of the agreement on government rules to impose a mandatory minimum of locally produced content on television. Given that US content can be purchased by networks at a reasonable price compared to local production of Australian content, there was concern that the agreement would further reduce the proportion of domestic media in Australian television channels and Australian cinemas. As a result, the Media, Entertainment and Art Alliance, as well as a number of prominent artists, have individually supported the rejection of the free trade agreement because it would undermine Australian culture. The full text of the agreement, as well as useful information and information sheets from the ACF, are available on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. For any specific questions regarding the agreement, e-mail ChinaFTA@dfat.gov.au or DFAT phone on 02 6261 1111. Importers can contact the Ministry of the Interior. In addition, this section describes customs cooperation to ensure the implementation of the rules of the agreement and outlines possible measures that can be taken when the exporting country appears to be acting in bad faith.
