EU seeks Australia, New Zealand trade deals by 2019 – Juncker – MSN

The European Union wants to launch free trade negotiations with Australia and New Zealand and conclude deals with both in the next two years, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Wednesday.

The head of the EU executive said that, over the last year, partners across the globe had lined up at Europe’s door to conclude trade agreements, which observers say is largely a reaction to a more protectionist United States under President Donald Trump.
