UK-NZ Free Trade Agreement
NOVEMBER 2018 TO FEBRUARY 2019
New Zealand is preparing for a future free trade agreement with the United Kingdom. New Zealand and the UK have committed to launching negotiations as soon as the UK is in a position to do so after Brexit.
From 23 November 2018 to 11 February 2019, we asked for New Zealanders’ views on a UK-NZ free trade agreement. We will also consult further on specific issues once negotiations are launched.

Trade for All
AUGUST 2018 TO OCTOBER 2018
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.

What happens next?
The Trade for All Advisory Board has been appointed to provide the Government with an independent report with recommendations on our trade policy. It is identifying and discussing key issues for how we achieve this.
Collated feedback from this consultations will be provided to the Trade for All Advisory Board to inform their discussions. Feedback from New Zealanders, along with the Trade for All Advisory Board’s recommendations, will inform the development of Trade for All in 2019.
