• Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA)

    The Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) entered into force on 15 January 2015.  Chapter 17 of the JAEPA contains legally binding requirements relating to procurement activities conducted by government agencies, including Western Australian government agencies. These requirements, including the thresholds at which the JAEPA applies, mirror those contained within the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement and the Australia-Chile Free Trade Agreement.
