"The exemption reflects the fair and reciprocal trade relationship Australia shares with the United States and underpins the unbreakable friendship between our two great nations," he said.

Mr Turnbull said the exemption supported both Australian and US jobs and would ensure the trade relationship continued to grow in a balanced manner.

While the President announced he had struck a deal with Australia, Argentina and Brazil, he also warned that under certain circumstances he could reimpose the tariffs.

Willswing could see a 10% cost increase if it imports aluminum from Europe.

Isn't Moyes' aluminum sourced from the same source in Europe? Don't they have to declare this when exporting to the U.S.?

"There are currently four aluminium smelters operating in Australia producing 1.96 million tonnes of primary aluminium in 2011, of which approximately 1.68Mt was exported. "

Fixing unfair trade deals won't be pretty.
