Australia stands divided, unsure of whether to continue close ties with the USA and risk the loss of its largest trading power China or to continue to tow the line of Nationalism with the US. As part of a recent forum we participated in at the hashtag#AKBC2018 we are encouraged to look beyond bi-lateral relationships and consider multi-lateral partnerships. The TPP still has significant advantages for Australia, even without the US participation. We are pleased to hear Australia has joined the TPP and will step up to support our role in the APAC Region. This will help support $5.7Bn in Travel revenue (excl Education) and $4.1Bn in Education related Travel for Australia.
