The landmark Australia-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) will enter into force on 15 January 2015.
JAEPA is by far the most ambitious trade deal that Japan has ever concluded, particularly in agriculture. It allows for two tariff cuts in quick succession: one on entry into force and one on 1 April 2015.
Subsequent phased tariff reductions will also occur on 1 April each year.
The full text of the agreement is available on the DFAT website.
