Proposed Australia-India Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement—2015 Submission to DFAT
Submission OverviewThe ECA welcomes the opportunity to put forward a submission on behalf of the export community on the potential outcomes and impacts of the Australia-India CECA. The ECA supports international agreements that serve to further liberalise trade between Australia and the rest of the world as trade is a driver of economic growth, job creation and long-term prosperity. It is also clear from AIBS 2015 results that there is the appetite from the Australian export community for a trade agreement with India given that 122 respondents indicated a trade agreement with India specifically would be useful to their business. Therefore, the ECA supports the Australian Government’s commitment to pursue a CECA with India, in so far as it has assurance that real gains can and will be made.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
