Australia has decided to walk away from the UK free trade deal about agriculture.

Australia’s trade minister has hinted towards it that they will withdraw from the UK markets if Australian exports are not given sufficient access. Both sides are hoping to strike an in-principle agreement by the time the Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, meets with Boris Johnson in London on Tuesday next week.

A meeting with all G7 states is about to be held and the matter will be discussed between the two governments. After the G7, Morrison will go to London for a two-day program with Johnson, and then on to Paris for trade and defense talks with the French president, Emmanuel Macron.

The other matters that are expected to be discussed at the summit are COVID and the climate crisis.

Tehan said Australia wanted to “offer British consumers the choice of being able to get access to more of our beef, more of our lamb and we know that British consumers do want to get access to more of our beef and more of our lamb”. Moreover, Australia’s export is not dependent on that of England’s hence; it can survive on their own.

Previously the UK could rely on the European Union’s specialist negotiators to handle detailed talks on proposed FTAs on behalf of the entire bloc.
