On 8 September 2016, FTA attended the inaugural session of the EU-Australia Leadership Forum. Notable guests included European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, and Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Julie Bishop MP.
The Leadership Forum provided a platform for leaders from the fields of business, media, civil society, and academia to collaborate on new ideas to promote and deepen the relationship between the European Union and Australia.
FTA strongly supports this project, as well as a swift conclusion to the EU-Australia negotiations for a free trade agreement, which will benefit FTA’s members and especially those from Australia. Furthermore, FTA is keen to actively contribute to these activities with the objective of promoting free and sustainable trade.
