Cerame-Unie replies to public consultations on EU FTAs

International Trade Negotiations
1 September 2016


Cerame-Unie replied to EC survey on EU FTA negotiations with Turkey, Australia and & NZ in early June. CU signalled that there were no trade barriers and tariffs on EU exports to Turkey thanks to the Customs Union. While trade relations between EU and Australia & NZ are satisfactory and existing tariffs of up to 5% on EU’s exports to Australia and New Zealand do not hinder trade, EU FTA with Australia and NZ represents an untapped export potential, especially for SMEs.
