Aus­tralia-EU FTA on ta­ble

The Western Star - - RURAL WEEKLY -

NE­GO­TI­A­TIONS for an Aus­tralia-EU Free Trade Agree­ment have been set in motion.

Min­is­ter for Agri­cul­ture David Lit­tleproud spoke with EU Com­mis­sioner for Trade Ce­cilia Malm­strom.

“It was great to sit down with the Com­mis­sioner to dis­cuss how an FTA would cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for agri­cul­ture in Aus­tralia and the EU,” Mr Lit­tleproud said.

“The EU is our fourth largest agri­cul­tural ex­port des­ti­na­tion. This fu­ture FTA will in­crease the value of the EU mar­ket for farm­ers.”
