The AFGC, in partnership with Baker & McKenzie, are pleased to invite you to attend: ‘Making food export easier – Industry, Government and Legal Perspectives’.
With the implementation of Australia’s trade agreements with Japan and Korea, and finalisation of negotiations with China and the Trans Pacific Partnership countries, Australian exporters will have a range of new trading opportunities. While tariffs and quotas will be reduced under the various trade agreements, a range of non-tariff barriers and complex regulatory regimes will continue to impede Australia’s exports to foreign markets. With the event to be held at the Sydney office of Baker & McKenzie, you will have the opportunity to hear from industry, government and the legal profession on the current challenges and opportunities when exporting food and beverage products.
