Auckland to host Trans Pacific partnership Trade Negotiations

22nd November 2012

The stakes have been raised for the 500 trade negotiators from 11 countries who will descend on Sky City early next month for the 15th round of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations.

Canada and Mexico will join the negotiations for the first time which will contribute another $1 billion in two way trade from the point of view of NZ negotiators. Extra pressure has also gone on NZ to make progress after Prime Minister John Key and United States President Barack Obama signalled at a meeting in Phnom Penh on Tuesday that they wanted the trade deal wrapped up within a year.

Negotiators will attempt to make progress on a total of about 25 different topics during negotiations between December 3rd and the 12th.
