THE AUSTRALIA AND EU TRADE RELATIONSHIP

Australia and the European Union (EU) enjoy a constructive and substantial bilateral relationship built on a shared commitment to freedom and democratic values and a like-minded approach to a broad range of trade, cultural and other international issues.

The West Australian European business community notes the excellent progress made by Australia and the European Union in advancing negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement(FTA) since agreement to pursue an FTA was announced at the G20 in Brisbane in 2014. The commencement of formal Negotiations was launched in the joint announcement made on the 18th June 2018 in Canberra, by the EU Commissioner for Trade and the Australian Trade Minister. There have now been 7 rounds of comprehensive negotiations with an aim of concluding the FTA by 2022.  As Australia’s second largest trading partner, bilateral trade in goods between the EU and Australia has risen steadily in recent years, reaching almost €48 billion last year. The sectors which make up the bulk of EU exports to Australia are transport equipment, machinery and appliances, chemicals, food, and services. Bilateral trade in services is around €28 billion. The agreement could increase trade in goods between the two partners by over a third when the FTA is finalised.
