"In recent years, international trade in wine and sugar has particularly benefited from negotiated agreements," said Dr Timsina, who visited Australia by the Nepal Agricultural Research Council. Deloitte Access Economics modelled the economic impact of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement on the Australian economy, including various parts of agriculture. As one of the sectors of Australian agriculture that is expected to benefit most from free trade agreements, this article takes a closer look at the impact on the cattle and cattle industry. The study also found that the increase in wheat trade is the result of free trade agreements with New Zealand and the Asean (Association of South East Asian Nations) countries. He analysed the impact of Australian free trade agreements on agricultural trade with non-agricultural trade, as well as on certain raw materials such as wine, sugar, beef, edible fruits and nuts and wheat. Existing tariffs on Australian beef imports into China range from 12% to 25% and our modelling is based on a complete elimination of tariffs within a decade. There is also an existing customs duty of 10% on live cattle. However, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, many of Australia`s imports of live cattle into China are purebred and this type of live cattle import does not currently incur any tariffs. It is therefore the removal of tariffs on beef (unlike live cattle) that has the most direct impact on the Australian beef and veal industry. "However, the degree of impact of current free trade agreements varies over time for different agricultural raw materials, so we need to regularly check and plan, based on the results of existing free trade agreements." Free trade agreements (FTAs) are international agreements that remove or remove certain barriers to trade and investment between two or more countries. Australia currently has 11 free trade agreements with 18 countries and has attempted to negotiate and implement additional agreements. "The study showed that in recent years, Australian free trade agreements have had more impact on the agricultural sector than the non-agricultural sector, particularly those involving China, Japan and Korea," said Dr Timsina. "These results have an impact on future international trade agreements that arise on the prosperity of regional Australia and the economy." A visiting economist found that free trade agreements are yielding mixed results for international trade in Australian agricultural products.
Dr Krishna Prasad Timsina, a post-doctoral fellow at Charles Sturt University, has shown that current free trade agreements are positive for export trade in Australian agricultural products, which is expected to continue in the future if new agreements are concluded.

The study, completed as part of Dr. Timsina`s six-month Federal Government Endeavour Fellowship, examined Australia`s trade with China, the United States and the European Union between 2008 and 2018. These results quantify the impact on two parts of the beef production chain: exploitation and processing. . . .
