Plans for 2016

This year we will support progress of the FTA process and move closer to commitments on both sides. 

We will continue to work with MFAT to ensure relations and trade with Europe continues to grow and develop.

Through various initiatives like the new Europe House arrangements we wish to bring prominence and full awareness to NZ of EU as the single biggest market in the world with a wealth of untapped market segments and opportunities.
