We're currently seeking submissions on New Zealanders and New Zealand businesses views on AANZFTA. These views will help us to form our overall approach to the AANZFTA upgrade.

Let us know

  • Do you actively use AANZFTA to trade into South East Asia? (And if not, what has prevented you?)
  • How has AANZFTA helped doing business in South East Asia?
  • What could we do to make it easier to export to South East Asia?
  • What improvements would you like to see in AANZFTA?

Email us at FTA_Outreach@mfat.govt.nz to share your views and register your interest in future engagement opportunities. We'll be accepting submissions until 31 July 2019.

Please note that individual statements or parts of statements may be published or publicly released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Only your name or organisation’s name and email address are required on a submission. Your contact details will not become publically available if submissions are published.

Engagement events

We'll be hosting public consultations so we can meet and discuss how we can improve AANZFTA for New Zealanders. For details on our upcoming trade policy events, see our public engagement on trade page.

Why are we consulting now?

We’re consulting with New Zealanders because it’s important for us to hear from New Zealanders before we begin, and so we can consider everyone’s views from the start.
