A high-level meeting between leaders of the European Union (EU) and Australia was held on 26 November 2020 via videoconference.
The leaders reconfirmed their resolve to work together to fight the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and to take effective measures to protect health and build more innovative, sustainable, inclusive and resilient economies. They reaffirmed their shared values and stressed their strong support for the international rules-based order and an effective multilateral system with the United Nations (UN) at its core.
Good progress was noted in the negotiations for a bilateral trade agreement. Both sides also discussed a number of global and regional issues, including strengthening the World Health Organisation (WHO) and reforming the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
