On Friday 27 October, Gavin Redmond, Supervisor in EisnerAmper Ireland’s International Business Team, attended a roundtable with Alison Burrows, Australian Chief Negotiator in upcoming EU-Australia trade negotiations.  The event, hosted by Ibec, was a collaboration with the Embassy of Australia in Ireland and the Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce.

Among the items discussed were Brexit, Europe as a leader in Free Trade following the U.S.A.’s withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, opportunities and threats posed by the FTA and the mutual recognition of “behind-the-border” barriers to trade.
