EU-Aus trade agreement on the cards

23 February 2016: The Australian Government has begun discussions with the European Union towards an EU-Australia free trade agreement. 

At this stage negotiations are not expected to start until next year. Since Brexit, there are also plans for a possible separate FTA with Britain.

We will be keeping an eye on this as it progresses - be sure to keep checking our website for all the latest information.

As always, AFTINET will be campaigning for both the negotiating process and the content of this and other trade agreements to be based on principles of democracy, human rights, labour rights and environmental sustainability.
