MFAT - Trade Negotiations

Event Date:

25th Jul 2019 9:30am-11:30am

Location:

Hamilton

Venue:

PwC Level 4 Cnr Angelsea & Ward Streets

Description:

Come along to our free event to hear from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade on negotiations for a European Union–New Zealand free trade agreement, and other trade negotiations.

You will gain a better understanding directly from the negotiating teams, on these issues:

The meaning of the EU-NZ FTA for New Zealand and where negotiations are at

The state of other trade agreements under negotiation or consideration

The presentation will be followed by plenty of time for questions and answers, networking and refreshments.

Our shared history and values make the European Union (made up of 28 member states) a close and like-minded trade partner for New Zealand.

A modern free trade agreement with the EU is a chance to deepen that partnership, deliver significant economic gains, and agree on high standards in areas that New Zealanders care about, such as the environment and labour standards.

Guest Speakers:

Clare Kelly, Divisional Manager, Trade Negotiations Division

Ali Hamilton, Deputy lead negotiator, Trade Negotiations Division
