EU Hopes To Launch New Zealand FTA Talks In 2017

11 January 2017


European Council President Donald Tusk has said that the EU hopes to launch free trade negotiations with New Zealand this year.

Tusk met with New Zealand's new Prime Minister, Bill English, on January 10. He said talks would begin "once all the preparatory work is completed."

According to Tusk, "Such an agreement would not only boost sustainable economic growth, investment, and job creation on both sides. It would also send a strong political signal of economic openness and trade at a time where protectionist pressures are on the rise. Not only on our continent but also around the world."
