Trade for All

We want our policies to help all New Zealanders benefit from trade. That’s why the Government has been consulting with New Zealanders to develop a “Trade for All” policy. 

Public consultation on Trade for All ran from August until October 2018. We asked New Zealanders to share their thoughts through the Have your Say website, from responding to multi-choice questions through to more detailed comments and submissions.

We also held a series of public meetings and hui around New Zealand over two months.

Read more about the Trade for All agenda on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website.

What happens next?

The Trade for All Advisory Board will work on identifying and discussing key issues for achieving a Trade for All policy. Collated feedback from the consultations process will be provided to the Trade for All Advisory Board to inform its discussions.

Feedback from New Zealanders, along with the Trade for All Advisory Board’s recommendations, will inform the development of Trade for All by June 2019.

The Board is chaired by trade expert David Pine who brings extensive experience in the public and private sectors.
