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.

“Our business is about making it easy for people to make environmentally friendly choices. We are looking to expand into new overseas markets and the ECA have been a huge help in this endeavour. The ECA have given us introductions to key businesses that can help us in the markets we are looking at, and their workshops and seminars on topics relevant to exporting were extremely useful. All up, our association with the ECA has been a great asset to Fruity Sacks.”Become a Member
