60th Anniversary of the signing of the Australia-Japan Agreement on Commerce 

6th July 2017

 

On 6 July 1957, the Agreement on Commerce between Australian and Japan was signed in Hakone, Japan. Sixty years since this ground-breaking partnership, our trade and investment relationship with Japan is robust and productive, aided further by gains from the 2014 Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA).

Ambassador Richard Court AC hosted a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Commerce Agreement during the visits of Minister for Foreign Affairs the Hon Julie Bishop MP and Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment the Hon Steven Ciobo MP. Japan’s State Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr Nobuo Kishi attended as a guest of honour.

 

 

Ambassador Court posted his thoughts on the 60th anniversary on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s blog.
