Australia and France share a close historical bond, and conduct substantial bilateral trade and investment. In 2017-18, goods imported into Australia from France were valued at AU$5.1 billion, with Australia’s exports to France valued at AU$1.6 billion. Given the current negotiations for the EU-Australia Free Trade Agreement, the exchange of goods and services between the two countries is expected to increase in the future.
