The ANU Centre for European studies delivered Understanding EU Trade training workshops in Hobart, Perth and Adelaide as part of a European Commission-funded Jean Monnet project that aims to help Australian policymakers, industry and civil society understand EU trade policy. The workshops were run with the support of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and the West Australian European Business Association in WA, and the Institute for International Trade at The University of Adelaide in SA.
'We designed these training sessions to support stakeholders from different organisations and sectors who may have little or no familiarity with the EU,' said Dr Annmarie Elijah, Associate Director of the ANU Centre for European Studies. 'The response has been extremely positive and we have had a great variety of sectors represented at the workshops'.
Ivana Damjanovic, a PhD student at the ANU Centre for European Studies, creates and delivers these sessions with Annmarie. 'It was excellent to reach stakeholders across Australia and to hear the different perspectives from Hobart, Perth and Adelaide’, Ivana said. 'We are looking forward to running sessions in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney later this year'.
