London and Canberra signed a free trade agreement in December after over a year of negotiations. Once in force, the FTA will eliminate virtually all export tariffs. Also in 2021, the two countries and the United States formed AUKUS, a trilateral security pact providing Australia with British and American nuclear sub technology.
Britain and Australia announced the signing of a new ‘Cyber and Critical Technology Partnership’ on Thursday, with London saying the deal will “strengthen global technology supply chains, ensure the UK’s positive technology vision and tackle malign actors who disrupt cyberspace.”
