China is Australia's largest trading partner and any trade agreement between the two countries will have significant impacts on the communities within the countries. The negotiations for the China/Australia FTA have taken place amongst a backdrop of a flawed feasibility study and no consideration of the impacts that an agreement would have on labour conditions, human rights, and environmental standards.

AFTINET has published a number of materials that give a more detailed background into the issues associated with negotiating a trade agreement with the world's fastest growing economy.

AFTINET Briefing Paper - A short summary of our AFTINET's concerns with an FTA.
