New Zealand Embassy Paris, France
Business and Trade
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE), are the two leading government agencies in the trade arena. They have two distinct roles; MFAT opens the door to foreign markets by overcoming or reducing trade access barriers, and NZTE helps New Zealand businesses, by providing export development consultancy services.
MFAT and Trade Policy
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is the New Zealand Government’s lead trade policy agency. In conjunction with its network of Embassies and High Commissions offshore, it is responsible for conducting the New Zealand Government’s business with foreign governments and international organisations, such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO). One of MFAT’s key trade responsibilities is to negotiate market access for New Zealand goods and services and to maintain and enforce that access.
NZTE - working with businesses
New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) is the New Zealand Government’s national economic development agency. Through its network of offices worldwide, NZTE aims to grow New Zealand’s economy by building the capability of businesses and regions and facilitating their sustained and profitable participation in overseas markets.
France is an important trading partner for New Zealand, with NZ$366 million worth of product exported to France in the year to June 2014 (a 10% increase on the previous year).
