Trade Minister Steven Ciobo says members of the 11-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership account for about 25 per cent of Australia’s exports, a figure that is likely to rise under the free trade deal. The Federal Government has revealed some details of the TPP; several participating nations will immediately scrap tariffs on products such as wine, seafood and steel, while some tariffs on beef will be phased out over a number of years. The TTP also includes provision for the free flow of data across borders. The TPP will be formally signed in Chile.
