New Zealand is hoping to launch talks towards a free trade agreement with the EU this week, the Government has said.

Speaking ahead of a June 7 OECD meeting, New Zealand's Trade Minister Todd McClay said he would discuss trade relationships with the EU and the US.

McClay said he had scheduled talks with European Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom and newly appointed US Trade Representative Ambassador Robert Lighthizer.
