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.
