Open, competitive and modern trade arrangements


We remain focused on advocacy for a free trade agreement with the US. More generally our programme is focused on the modernisation of our trade arrangements and the international trading system, not only to fix existing problems, but also to enhance these arrangements’ agility in the face of rapid technological change. Consistent across all our programmes is a focus on improving the approach to big data, digital infrastructure, artificial intelligence, networks, and mobility.



The Council is an established, non-partisan, non-government organisation focused on advancing New Zealand’s interests within a strong, mutually beneficial relationship with the US.
