How the benefits of KAFTA are shared – Case study: Australian defence equipment
The Export Council of Australia (ECA) interviewed a Korean importer of military clothing and tactical gear.
The importer mostly imported from the US, but over the last few years has looked to diversify its product range, as well as both the companies and countries
it imports from. Before KAFTA came into force, the importer would have typically faced tariffs of between 8% and 13% if it had imported from Australia,
which would have been uncompetitive.
