Australia Trade Agreement With Uk

This box describes examples of types of provisions within a free trade agreement that can reduce the costs of trade in goods and services. Overall, respondents from all groups expressed similar labour and environmental priorities and concerns and stressed the importance of maintaining the UK`s high labour and environmental standards. One of the recurring concerns has been the impact of trade with Australia on climate change and global carbon emissions due to the geographical distance between Britain and Australia. Respondents also said that priority should be given to the free movement of skilled workers between the UK and Australia and to ensuring the absence of MRPQ. Many interviewees were positive, with one commenting that the removal of import duties could make UK products more competitive without harming small local production. Better access to the Australian market should increase the competitiveness of UK products and ensure a level playing field for UK businesses. .
