Shepparton News - Country News - - EUROA SHOW 2018 -

Aus­tralia has of­fi­cially joined a mas­sive trade deal that the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment says will de­liver a wind­fall to farm­ers and busi­ness.

Prime Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son has con­firmed Aus­tralia rat­i­fied the Tran­sPa­cific Part­ner­ship last Wed­nes­day, mak­ing it the sixth coun­try to do so.
