From wool and gold to minerals and manufacturing, Trading Nation reviews the history of Australia’s trade and trade policy since Federation. The book tackles a number of key questions that are central to the nation’s future. What is the future of trade in minerals, agriculture, manufacturing and services? How can trade policy help address faltering productivity? Is the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations dead and, if not, what can be done to conclude it? What can be expected from new free trade agreements? Is there more to be done in trade policy with Europe, India, and Latin America? This comprehensive book also looks ahead at the options for Australia’s future trade and trade policy.
