Economics and Trade

Agriculture accounts for almost half of New Zealand's total exports, so we maintain a close interest in domestic and international economic policies that affect our farmers, working hard to ensure that all policy should promote sustainability, productivity, innovation and global competitiveness.  We regularly comment on the economy and we hold positions on fiscal policy, taxation, monetary policy, regulatory policy, banking, overseas investment, and trade policy.
