New Zealand, EU Keen On Free Trade Deal, Says McClay

New Zealand's Trade Minister, Todd McClay, met with senior European Union officials on February 16, 2016, to discuss a free trade agreement (FTA) between the two sides.

McClay met with the European Union Vice President for Jobs, Growth, Investment, and Competitiveness, Jyrki Katainen, and Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström, in Brussels. He also met with Member of the European Parliament Daniel Caspary who has responsibility for New Zealand in its International Trade Committee.

"An EU-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement would mutually benefit economic growth and productivity and support New Zealand businesses – particularly SMEs," McClay said following the meetings.

The Minister said that the meetings revealed a continued shared interest in commencing negotiations on an FTA as soon as the relevant EU processes are completed.
