New Zealand Embassy Mexico City
New Zealand and Guatemala
New Zealand and Guatemala share a positive relationship, and work together closely through our common membership of the Cairns Group of countries promoting agricultural trade liberalisation.
New Zealand established diplomatic relations with Guatemala in 2001. In January 2002 the then New Zealand Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Hon Phil Goff, visited Guatemala. The visit was historic as the first Ministerial-level bilateral visit between New Zealand and Guatemala. During his visit, Minister Goff opened the New Zealand Consulate.
New Zealand's exports to Guatemala in the year 2012 were worth NZ$17 million, comprising mainly dairy products. New Zealand imported NZ$4.18 million of goods from Guatemala during the same period, over half of which was coffee.
For further information on the New Zealand - Guatemala bilateral relationship, please refer to the Guatemala country paper on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website.
