New Zealand's ASEAN Strategy

The New Zealand Inc Strategy for the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) was launched by Prime Minister John Key on 12 July in Auckland.

New Zealand’s ASEAN Strategy is one of a number of Strategies focusing on countries or regions of key importance to us over the next five years.

ASEAN presents New Zealand with significant opportunities across ten nations to grow our political, trade and people to people relationships.

The Strategy sets goals in three broad areas:

  • Becoming better connected and more influential with key ASEAN countries
  • Becoming better integrated with the ASEAN Community and valued for our contribution
  • Boosting investment, trade and economic returns from the region to grow and diversify our economic relationships with key ASEAN countries.
