Details about public and business events about trade will be listed on this page as they are finalised. Check back for updates.

We held events on New Zealand’s trade negotiation agenda in June and July 2017.  These were for New Zealanders to learn about New Zealand’s full trade agenda from our trade negotiators.  

The public meetings  included updates on the upgrade of the New Zealand-China free trade agreement, the prospective New Zealand and European Union free trade agreement, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and the recently concluded PACER Plus agreement with Australia and Pacific Island partners.

The sessions were held in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Trade is part of our everyday life, and the jobs of hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders are linked to our export sectors. Because of this, the Government is committed to engaging more with New Zealanders on trade.
