FTAs made simple


NSW Premier's Export Awards

Hunt & Hunt has helped the Export Council of Australia (ECA) to develop the "FTA Tool", a website for Australian exporters that simplifies the use of the 10 Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) signed between Australia and other nations.

The new FTA Tool is designed to help Australian exporters navigate the basics of Australia's FTAs quickly and easily, increasing utilisation of FTAs.



We are also proud to be supporting the Premier's NSW Export Awards and encourage all NSW business engaged in international business to apply and be recognised for your export success.
