The Australian Financial Reviews has updated its database of trade deals and deals negotiated by Australian companies since the start of the Australian government’s first war.
This includes deals and agreements in the energy, mining, transport, telecommunications and financial sectors.
The database also includes deals in other sectors.
A key takeaway is that the majority of deals between Australian companies in the 1980s and 1990s were bilateral, with the exception of deals in the financial services sector.
Australia has had a number of trade agreements since 2000.
The list below includes some deals which have been cancelled, renegotiated or never happened.
