Understanding EU Trade: A Guide for Australian Stakeholders - Canberra Workshop

Trade negotiations between Australia and the European Union are expected to get underway in 2018.

This EU funded Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Project aims to help Australian policy makers, industry and civil society understand European Union trade policy. 

The training will include:

  • an update on the current state of play;
  • an accessible explanation of how the EU works;
  • a session on EU trade policy making;
  • details on key issues such as Geographic Indications, Investor-State Dispute Settlement, Services and Agricultural Trade; and information on how to find out more.

The training is designed to support stakeholders from different organisations and sectors who may have little or no familiarity with the EU.

Have your say about the Australia–EU Free Trade Agreement

It is clear that an Australia–EU FTA presents both opportunities and challenges for Australian business and industry. The ANU Centre for European Studies (ANUCES) and the Australian Industry Group (AIG) invite you to complete our survey that aims to shed light on some of these challenges and draw attention to specific issues that industry representatives wish to raise. We welcome further engagement with industry and distribution of the survey to interested parties.
