🇦🇺🇪🇺 new framework agreement
Europe and Australia are geographically very far apart, but we work together on a daily basis on the global stage, as like-minded partners and friends. Ours is a partnership of opportunities: bringing our populations closer together to facilitate exchanges, trade, and sharing knowledge. The agreement we have signed today reflects how strong our ties are already and how they will become stronger through our increased exchanges and cooperation, for the sake of our peoples and of the world. The Agreement will guide future engagement between the European Union and Australia and complement work towards launching negotiations for a comprehensive and high quality free trade agreement.
