Objectives

1. ZERO TARIFFS FOR ALL PRODUCTS FOR ANZ

ASEAN’s target since the start of the negotiations is to demand 100% tariff elimination from Australia and New Zealand.

2. PHILIPPINES EQUALIZING WITH THAILAND –

( a major competitor which currently enjoys lower tariffs because of their bilateral FTAs with Australia and New Zealand)

  • Important for Philippine export products facing fierce competition from Thailand, i.e., wiring harness, other motor parts, food products, garments, fashion jewelry and furniture


Cont. Objectives

3. Promote product complementation

Most of our major exports are not products of selling interest of Australia/New Zealand

Most of our imports from Australia/New Zealand are not locally produced or are locally produced but insufficient quantity

Examples of product complementation with Australia are on the autoparts and copper industries

Lowering of tariffs promotes lower-priced manufacturing inputs

Zero for Zero for some auto and auto parts

Objective: Export Opportunity In Australia For The Automotive Industry

To equalize with Thailand’s existing rates under TAFTA

With zero tariffs for Philippine cars, Australia becomes an attractive export market for car and car parts manufacturers.

Philippines becomes an alternative investment site for international car companies planning to export to Australia.

Australian car exports to the Middle East and even Africa would constitute a valuable market for Philippine parts manufacturers.
