Stephen Hoadley presents material from his recent book, “New Zealand Trade Negotiations,” touching on past trade access breakthroughs, current geopolitical uncertainties, and future hopes with regard to free trade agreements between the EU and the UK post-Brexit.
His book traces New Zealand’s successful FTA initiatives with Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand, ASEAN, South Korea and Chile and its achievement of trade ‘firsts’ with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. After reviewing New Zealand’s participation in the World Trade Organisation, Dr. Hoadley offers speculation regarding seven pending FTAs, the suspended Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the prospective Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership.
This lecture was hosted by the Europe Institute at the University of Auckland.
