New Zealand-European Union FTA

The NZ-EU FTA, concluded on 30 June, is now undergoing legal verification and, after that, will be translated into the EU’s 23 official languages. The FTA will need to be agreed by Ministerial representatives from each of the 27 Member States, and approved by the European Parliament, in order to enter into force. But it will not need to be ratified by each of the individual Member States (making it a simpler process than some of the EU’s other FTAs). That said, ratification may not be easy, and there is already opposition to the deal from some in the EU’s agricultural sector. If domestic processes are progress smoothly on both the EU and New Zealand side, the FTA could be signed by mid-2023, and come into effect in 2024.

ExportNZ DHL Export Barometer Survey 2022

ExportNZ and DHL are joining forces to bring you a small survey with big outcomes for NZ exporters.

The past 12 months have been exceptionally challenging for New Zealand exporters. Through this survey last year, you told us the leading barriers to exporting included the cost and availability of transport and logistics, the inability to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions, and the high cost of doing business in NZ. ExportNZ has advocated for change based on your responses.

We want to make sure we’re still tackling the most critical barriers to business. So tell us, what’s changed?

This survey takes no more than 10 minutes to complete and forms an essential part of ExportNZ’s advocacy work.

Complete the survey here before 26th August and make sure your business is heard.

Known for its diversity, Malaysia is made up of three main ethnicities; Malay (67.4%), Chinese-Malays (24.6%), Indians-Malays (7.3%) and Others (0.7%).

This blend of cultures has led to Malaysia having the one of the most diverse cuisines available in the region. Indeed, food is at the centre of the Malaysian culture. So much so that Malaysians tend to greet people by asking 'Have you eaten?' rather than the traditional "Hello".
