Australian High Commissioner gives evidence on UK-Australia trade talks
On Wednesday, the House of Lords International Agreements Sub-Committee will hear from the Australian High Commissioner on the ambition and progress of UK-Australia trade negotiations.
The second round of UK-Australia trade talks was completed earlier this month, and the next round will begin at the end of November. A deal with Australia could help the UK in its efforts to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership, as well as directly boosting the economy. But it could also pose potential challenges for some UK industries.
Topics for discussion
- Benifits of a UK-Australia trade deal
- Tariff rate quotas
- Product standards for agricultural goods and regulatory cooperation
- Financial and professional services
