Vietnam is a signatory of AANZFTA, the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement. Already, significant benefits from this agreement which was signed off in 2010 have started flowing through. Australian sales of wheat to Vietnam, for example, increased by 44 per cent in 2016 due, in part, to the removal of a 5 per cent tariff under AANZFTA.
