Our relationship with Malta
New Zealand and Malta have a long-standing and warm relationship, grounded in war time links, as well as our shared values and perspectives as small Commonwealth states committed to international peace and security, democracy, open trade, human rights, environment, and the rules-based international system. New Zealand also values its relationship with Malta as a member state of the European Union.
New Zealand and Malta regularly exchange views at International meetings, including the Asia-Europe Meeting and the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
The relationship has been strengthened through Ministerial visits, notably by the Rt Hon Prime Minister John Key in 2015, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Social Development in 2013. This led to new bilateral initiatives such as the conclusion of a Social Security Agreement.
