Australia is one of the most prosperous countries in the Asia-Pacific region. It has a strong and dynamic relationship with the EU, and negotiations for a free trade agreement between Australia and the EU are expected to be launched later in 2017. In 2016, Australia was the EU’s 19th largest trading partner, with a 1.3 % share of the EU’s total trade. Further information on EU-Australia trade relations, such as the composition of trade between the two partners, can be found in this infographic, which also provides an economic snapshot of Australia.
