24/05/2018 – Launch of trade negotiations including GIs between the EU and Australia, and NewZealand

On 22 May, the Council of the European Union authorised the Commission to launch negotiations for Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with Australia and New Zealand. The first round of talks will take place in Brussels in July. More information @ http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-18-3881_en.htm 

As GIs will be a sensitive issue in the framework of negotiations, oriGIn will follow its developments and make sure the rights of GIs groups will be taken into account.
