Our relationship with Malta
New Zealand and Malta have a long-standing and warm relationship, grounded in our Commonwealth histories. New Zealand also values its relationship with Malta as a member state of the European Union.
As small Commonwealth states, New Zealand and Malta regularly exchange views at International meetings, including the Asia-Europe Meeting and the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
In recent years, the relationship has been strengthened by a number of Ministerial visits. The Minister of Foreign Affairs visited Malta in 2013, as did the Minister of Social Development. This led to new bilateral initiatives such as the conclusion of a Social Security Agreement.
