The Government is a supporter of free trade. However, free trade does not mean trade without rules. An important part of our rounded trade policy is that we put in place a trade remedies framework to protect domestic industry from injury as a result of dumping or subsidy, or unforeseen surges in imports.

DIT Ministers have made a combined number of 60 visits to Australia, USA, Canada and EU countries and have had wide ranging discussions on a range of topics including future trade policy options.
