CANZUK reports very encouraging

Reports out of the United Kingdom that a CANZUK trade deal is “very likely to happen” is welcome news.

Senator Abetz has been a long-time advocate of closer trade links with the United Kingdom, something that wasn’t possible during to their membership of the European Union.

“I am very pleased that talks of a trade deal between Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Australia are progressing well to a point where officials are now considering it very likely,” Senator Abetz said today.

“It’s logical for our four nations who share a Monarch and similar systems of Government to engage in a more formal partnership and trade links between our nations.”

“For example, it’s always struck me as passing strange that at Heathrow there is an express line for the European Union but no such line for Commonwealth nations’ citizens.”

“Following the decisive Brexit decision, this is an exciting opportunity and I’m pleased it’s being grabbed with both hands,” Senator Abetz concluded.
