The Embassy of Italy will coordinate addresses from the Delegation of the European Union to Australia and from other European Embassies on the importance of the G.I.s on the wake of the start of FTA negotiations.
A panel of experts will discuss on GIs, aiming at informing an Australian audience of producers, policy makers and academics about the EU system of GIs protection and the potential benefits for Australia. GIs will be a key area of the upcoming FTA between Australian and the EU, and the event will help reinforcing the case for them, directly building on the momentum from the second round of negotiations finishing the day before. The panel of the experts will include the EU and Australia’s GIs negotiators.
This will be followed by a degustation of European and Australian high quality food products presented by the Italian senior chef, Matteo Vigotti, Ambassador of ALMA.
