Australia launches new economic and commercial diplomacy agenda

The Australian Government has launched a new Economic and Commercial Diplomacy Agenda (ECD) to promote Australia as an attractive place to invest, study and visit. The ECD Agenda will use the full suite of the Australian Government’s diplomatic resources and our domestic networks to advocate for an open global economy, support businesses seeking commercial opportunities, advance our political and economic interests, and strengthen our international competitiveness.

The ECD agenda focuses on five priorities:

-               addressing non-tariff barriers to trade

-               actively supporting and facilitating businesses engaged internationally

-               advocating for the global rules-based trade system

-               increasing science, technology and innovation links.
