In 1957 an Agreement on Commerce between Australia and Japan had been made. This agreement made it possible for these countries to trade with each other. In 1976 a Basic Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation between Australia and Japan was signed. This was Australia’s first treaty of this type to be made with a country.
1995 - Joint Declaration on the Australia-Japan Partnership. This is to reconfirm Australia’s relationship with Japan. It is to make our relationship last for a long time and to make it stronger. 1997- Japan and Australia Partnership Agenda. This agreement is simply telling us that trade between Australia and Japan will increase in all areas. These areas include security and defence, housing and building, energy and agriculture, science and technology and many more. It is also telling us that the two countries are becoming closer with each other.
3. What agreement was made between Australia and Japan in 1957 ? Agreement on Commerce Agreement on Friendship
Cultural: Advantages – Australia is being influenced by Japan’s culture. We can now become more multicultural and have a different variety to choose from. One of the influences is the traditional foods such as Sushi and Yakitori chicken. We have also adopted Karaoke, Anime (Japanese style cartoons) and Manga (Japanese comics) from Japan.
Cultural: Disadvantages – Australians and Japanese have different cultural background interests. Australians may like farming and mining products where as Japan is more interested in enhancing and furthering their technology.
4. What are some Japanese traditional foods ? Sushi and Yakitori Chicken Tabouli and Hummus
Economic: Advantages – A main product that is imported to Australia from Japan are different types of cars. This is an advantage for Australia as firstly, it is cheaper to manufacture these cars overseas and secondly, Japan has the right amount of technology to develop cars and make them at a much higher rate of production. The economic advantage to Australia is huge as it saves Australia large amounts of money.
Economic: Disadvantages – Many Australians argue that not many Australian products are being made and most are coming from foreign countries. Australians argue because they believe that, if we buy foreign products the money is going back to that country but if we buy Australian made products this will allow the money to stay in our country and circulate through it to benefit Australian businesses.

Geopolitical: Advantages - Australia being isolated from the rest of the world can dodge economical crisis. Japan was affected but quickly recovered. This can then result in Australia and Japan making agreements on helping other countries that are in need of help. Geopolitical: Disadvantages – As Australia and Japan are very close in trade together it lessens our relationship with other countries. This can cause conflict and arguments with other countries and ours.
There are no Social Justice and equity issues between Australia and Japan as they are both Developed countries and are helping each other to progress in the economy. There are issues with other countries in the Asia – Pacific regions, an example would be the culture in China. China has been accepting trades from other countries. The products that they are importing are from the Western countries these include clothes, food, music and shops. The new generation of Chinese are adapting to these things very quickly and now are becoming less of there own culture.
There are large organisations that try to help out with these sorts of issues. One of these organisations is the OECD, which stands for Economic Co-operation and development. They cover economic, environmental and social issues.
