Learn more about doing business between the UK, Australia and New Zealand




The  UK has signed an historic free trade agreement with Australia, our first from scratch since leaving the EU and is currently negotiating an ambitious trade agreement with New Zealand.  These deals will deliver a range of benefits for businesses, including cutting tariffs on iconic local exports, opening up opportunities for technology and services providers, and making it easier to trade digitally.

Australia and New Zealand provide access to the Asia Pacific region, home to some of the world's fastest growing economies.  Whilst the UK offers an innovative, highly skilled ecosystem to achieve strong international growth.

To support your expansion, we are hosting a range of events to help you learn about the new opportunities in these two markets.
