Feedback for the UK-NZ Free Trade Agreement

Posted on 09 March 2022

The Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee is seeking public submissions about the international treaty examination of the UK-NZ Free Trade Agreement.
Securing an agreement with the UK has been a priority for New Zealand since the UK’s decision to leave the European Union in 2016. The benefits of the agreement would be broad, and it is estimated that it will boost New Zealand’s annual GDP by between NZ$710million and NZ$811million when fully implemented (estimated by 2040). The chapters in the agreement are wide-ranging, including trade, gender equality, and development.
The submission template and further information is available here. Feedback is welcomed from the public with a deadline of 11.59pm on 13th March 2022.
