New Zealand Embassy Brasilia, Brazil

New Zealand and Brazil

New Zealand and Brazil have a friendly and developing relationship with many areas of common interest, both bilaterally and multilaterally.  New Zealand has had diplomatic relations with Brazil for several decades.  Bilateral relations have strengthened considerably since the launch of the New Zealand Government's Latin American Strategy in August 2000, and the establishment of the New Zealand Embassy in Brazil in 2001 - one of the key elements of the Strategy.  New Zealand and Brazil work together in a number of multilateral processes, notably the WTO and Climate Change negotiations.  There is a valuable flow of Ministerial and official visitors.

For more information please see New Zealand's Brazil Country Paper.
