Submission on Australian-European Union FTA negotiations

This submission provides the Business Council of Australia’s views on the Australia–European Union Free Trade Agreement (A–EU FTA) negotiations, including our suggestions on desirable objectives for the negotiations.

The Business Council appreciates that any free trade agreement (FTA) is a product of negotiation and ‘give and take’, and that not all that might be desirable will be achievable. Nonetheless, the ideas and suggestions below indicate potential areas of benefit for Australian businesses and the Australian economy.
