Leveraging the NZ-EU FTA

Why Attend?

Hear from the Officials, Learn from the Experts!

The European Union is one of the world’s largest and most lucrative markets – and New Zealand now has a free trade agreement that delivers new benefits to a wide range of export and business sectors wanting to do business in the EU.

These free-to-attend events are not to be missed, here's why:

  • Hear from a panel of trade experts about the ins and outs of the FTA,
  • Learn from businesspeople and exporters already doing business in the EU,
  • Plenty of time to ask questions and engage with our expert panels,
  • Network and swap stories with other exporters in the room.

The new FTA has already delivered a tariff saving of $100 million a year, with 91 per cent of New Zealand’s current goods trade entering the EU tariff free. But the FTA does a whole lot more than remove tariffs – there are great outcomes for businesses interested in;

  • Government procurement in the EU,
  • Education services,
  • Aviation services,
  • Access to investment opportunities,
  • Sustainable development.

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, Export New Zealand, German New Zealand Chamber of Commerce, and Delegation of the European Union are pleased to be hosting these free-to-attend events around the country.

With a great lineup of speakers in each location, make sure to save your seat today – see the locations, dates, and times of the events below.
