New Zealand's trade policy has been refreshed. We held public meetings in September 2016 to hear the views of all New Zealanders on how it should be shaped.

It is important that all New Zealanders can see the stake they have in the benefits of trade for this country. For this reason, as part of the process for the refresh of New Zealand’s Trade Policy Strategy, we held public meetings in the main centres, open to all New Zealanders. 

These meetings provided an opportunity to hear from the Minister of Trade and officials on the thinking behind intended shifts in New Zealand’s approach to international trade and for us to hear the views of all New Zealanders.
