Aurizon welcomes bi-partisan support of China Australia Free Trade Agreement
Australia’s largest rail freight business Aurizon welcomed confirmation from Canberra today of bi-partisan support for the China Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA).
“This will deliver the next level of economic development between the two countries – a platform for more trade and more opportunity for Australian business,” Aurizon Managing Director & CEO Lance Hockridge said.
“The benefits will be multi-dimensional, benefitting not only traditional exports such as resources but also the high-growth areas such as agribusiness, professional services, tourism and education.”
Aurizon has long supported the ChAFTA Agreement and has continued to champion the benefits in a range of forums. In September, Lance Hockridge addressed the issue at a China Business Council meeting in Brisbane, and the Company also supported the Business Council of Australia campaign for the agreement.
