The agreement is expected to increase the bilateral trade between India and Australia by more than 30%, and create more than 1 million jobs in the two countries.

The agreement is seen as a major step forward in the economic ties between the two countries. It is expected to open up new opportunities for businesses and investors in both countries, and create a more conducive environment for growth and development.

The written notifications exchanged between India and Australia marks the completion of the ratification process and the completion of all necessary domestic requirements, including internal legal procedures.
