Ciobo calls to revamp global trade agenda

Amid the global rising tide for protectionism, trade ministers will meet in Norway this weekend to urgently consider how to rally support for the free trade agenda.

Trade Minister Steve Ciobo will attend a World Trade Organisation meeting and says it needs to be strengthened to ensure a robust agenda for trade negotiations to drive growth and prosperity.

He will also visit the Netherlands to build support for the start of negotiations for an Australian- European Union trade pact.
