CANBERRA - Australia's Opposition on Wednesday agreed with the government on terms which would allow the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) to go ahead.

Following a meeting between Labor senator Penny Wong and the government's Trade Minister, Andrew Robb, Labor's caucus room approved the deal on Wednesday morning, which now includes a number of small changes to Australia's Migration act.

Labor had previously held concerns over the agreement, saying that Australian jobs and worker's rights would be negatively affected by the deal.
