The STS vision

The Simplified Trade System addresses a whole-of-government reform agenda to create a simpler, more effective, and sustainable cross-border trade environment for Australia. Simpler trade will benefit Australian businesses, government and the community, including through reducing the cost of trade, increasing productivity and relieving cost of living pressures. The STS will also amplify and enable Government priorities to diversify trade, drive supply chain resilience, and ensure strong border protections.
