Victoria’s trade relationship with North America is dominated by the United States of America, which will continue to provide significant opportunities for Victorian exporters.

Underpinning Victoria's and the USA's dynamic trade and investment relationship is the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA) which came into force in 2005. Canada is also an important market.
