The Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) welcomes the official signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) today in Auckland, New Zealand.
Minister for Trade and Investment, the Hon. Andrew Robb AO MP, is representing Australia at the signing ceremony, which also includes Trade Ministers from the other member countries.
“The industry congratulates Minister Robb and his team of negotiators, in signing another trade agreement that benefits the Australian economy,” ADIC Chair, Simone Jolliffe said.
The ADIC notes the gains made for the Australian dairy industry in improving opportunities in key export markets such as Japan.
The conclusion of the TPP continues a historic period of increased trade liberalisation over the past few years.
The ADIC remains committed to working with Minister Robb and the Australian Government to continue trade benefits for Australia’s dairy exports.
Following the signing ceremony, Australia must go through a domestic ratification process.
