Exports with a global reputation for excellence

High-quality goods and services from New South Wales are sought-after globally, with exports generating $95 billion in revenue during 2019-20, equivalent to 15 per cent of the total state economy.

The NSW Government is committed to helping more businesses tackle global markets, including Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and is actively promoting the State in key markets internationally.

Free Trade Agreements

NSW businesses benefit from 15 Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) between Australia and markets across Asia, the Pacific and the Americas.

FTAs reduce or eliminate barriers to trade and investment, allowing NSW companies to compete on a level playing field.

A further eight FTAs with markets in Asia, Europe and the Middle are currently under negotiation or awaiting ratification.
