Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement: Stakeholder information for Auckland round

Stakeholder information for Auckland round

As hosts of the next round of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, New Zealand is pleased to announce SkyCity Convention Centre in downtown Auckland as the venue for Round 15 to be held over 3-12 December 2012.

New Zealand will organise a programme for registered stakeholders from TPP participating countries on Friday 7 December, to enable the maximum number of negotiators to be available to take part in stakeholder sessions.  The programme will include opportunities for stakeholders to make short presentations related to TPP, and a briefing with TPP Chief Negotiators.  We are giving consideration to the possibility of a reception for stakeholders and negotiators.

Further information about the stakeholder programme, registration and submitting presentation proposals will be provided in due course.

For stakeholders travelling from outside Auckland, there are many hotel options in the vicinity of SkyCity Convention Centre.  Advice about accommodation, local transport and other information can be found on

Stakeholders are also advised to consult regarding visas for entry to New Zealand (noting that transit through Australia may also require a visa), and to apply promptly if a visa is required.

The New Zealand team looks forward to welcoming stakeholders to Auckland in December.
