EU-Australia and EU-New Zealand free trade agreements - EU Commission consultation and input request on trade barriers

The European Commission has launched an investigation with the Member States on the negotiations for EU-Australia and EU-New Zealand free trade agreements, aimed at collecting indications on the offensive and defensive priorities of each sector and on the obstacles to access to these markets.
In particular, it is requested to indicate the tariff lines to 8 digit for which tariff liberalization is desirable, the non-tariff barriers that hinder our export to the two countries, the difficulties in access to public tenders and specific defensive interests (also in this case the tariff lines to 8 figures are required). Furthermore, it asks to indicate problems related to the protection of Geographical Indications, obstacles related to the services and investments sector.
