Our relationship with the Slovak Republic
New Zealand’s relationship with the Slovak Republic is friendly and in good health. As small states with export-focused economies, Slovakia and New Zealand have much in common.

New Zealand values its relationship with Slovakia as an EU member state, and the Working Holiday Scheme with Slovakia, agreed in April 2012,offers an opportunity to build closer ties.
