Deputy PM talks trade
The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Trade, the Hon. Mark Vaile, was at the University of Adelaide recently to address a business forum on the major trade challenges facing Australian business.
The Institute for International Trade (until recently the Institute for International Business, Economics and Law) joined with Business SA to host Mr Vaile's address to business and industry representatives.
The Minister spoke on the ongoing need and significance of the World Trade Organization to Australia and global trade despite the current stalemate in trade negotiations.
The Institute for International Trade is a University of Adelaide centre of expertise on international trade issues. It provides trade research and advice to business and government, runs courses and workshops on trade for developing countries, and runs postgraduate courses on trade, business and development-related issues.
