In order to deepen trade relations, the governments of Australia and India began negotiations on the Australia-India Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (ECSC) in 2011. Negotiations are expected to conclude shortly, resulting in a series of bilateral trade agreements between Australia and its key partners in the Asian region. The implementation of the ECSC with India is expected to make a significant contribution to continued growth in trade in goods and services as well as investment. Contains general information, updated economic indicators, Australia`s trade and investment relations with India and their global trade relations, which are updated twice a year. RCEP members, India and Indonesia, have a policy of excluding or severely restricting investor rights in new agreements. “If Australia takes a flexible approach to milk and agriculture and is prepared to take into account some of our interests in the service sector, including simpler rules on visas for workers, a free trade pact can certainly be developed,” said the official. These conflicts between governments have been deepened by national pressure from civil society groups in RCEP countries, including Australia. When the RECP negotiations took place in Australia last July, 52 community organizations, including health groups, unions, churches, the environment and aid, supported a letter to Trade Minister Simon Birmingham. They asked him to oppose ISDS and the RCEP`s longer pharmaceutical monopolies and to unblock the text for an independent evaluation before it was signed. Trade between India and Australia has increased sharply over the past decade, but is strongly skewed in Australia`s favour. In 2018-19, India`s imports from the island nation were estimated at $13.3 billion, while Australia`s imports from India amounted to only $3.52 billion, resulting in a trade deficit of nearly $10 billion.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and other heads of state and government participating in the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) belatedly announced yesterday that 15 of the 16 countries had finalized the text and were ready to sign the trade agreement in early 2020. India has already concluded several free trade agreements – including the subcontinent countries, some ASEAN countries and Korea – and, more importantly, hopes to conclude a free trade agreement with the 27 countries that make up the European Union by December 2010. While India has difficulty accepting the liberalized trade standards of most Western countries, it is also not in an economic context. In response to India`s economic strategy, published last year, the Indian government has commissioned an Australian reciprocal economic strategy, which is expected to be published before the end of the year.
