China-Australia FTA after COVID-19: Tariff to Technology

China-Australia FTA after COVID-19: Tariff to Technology

This event focuses on legal issues regarding both the classical and the new model when exporting Australian products to China.

Classical trade liberalisation is driven by manufacturers and governments. This is because the existing global value chain is largely based on the comparative advantage of production, and WTO regulations mainly focus on manufacturers and states rather than consumers. However, cross-border retail e-commerce has spurred a new, consumer-led model of trade liberalization, which unlike the classical approach, tends to be tariff-free, retail-based and grass-roots. This event focuses on legal issues regarding both the classical and the new model when exporting Australian products to China.
