I joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade in 2008 after completing my university study. Iím based in the Australia Division, overseeing goods trade with Australia under the Closer Economic Relations trade agreement (CER) and working to promote closer economic integration with Australia. Given the importance of Australia to New†Zealand, and the close ties that so many of us share, Iíve very much enjoyed working in the ďAusĒ team.
I also have the background of having been born in Sydney, right before my family moved back to New†Zealand. Since then I have lived in Auckland, Dunedin and now Wellington, as well as having had a few goes at the big Kiwi OE.
