PACER Plus Website Links FYI


Please see below for a series of factsheets on PACER-Plus.  These 2-page factsheets are intended for distribution to journalists, non-government organisations, government officials and other interested parties.  They can be used as a set to encourage discussion about the potential implications of PACER-Plus.

Three factsheets have been prepared by the Australian Civil Society Network on Pacific Trade, and another four were produced by the People's Health Movement (Australia) and the Public Health Association of Australia (Victoria Branch).
