Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership agreement (RCEP) Submission

ActionAid Australia welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties inquiry into the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership agreement (RCEP).


ActionAid Australia supports women living in poverty to stand up and claim their human rights by collectively confronting the injustices they face. In more than 45 countries, ActionAid supports women to understand their rights, reflect on the people and systems that affect them, and harness their power to act with others to change their lives and positions in society. More than 60,000 Australians support our efforts to advance economic and climate justice for women and their rights in emergencies. ActionAid is a member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and partners with DFAT through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program.

ActionAid advocates for an international trade system that is underpinned by strong gender analysis and oriented around the realisation of human rights, gender equality and sustainable development.
