New Zealand Winegrowers has warmly welcomed the announcement by the Prime Minister of the government’s new vision for trade strategy outlined in Trade Agenda 2030. The shifts in trade policy will help increase the resilience of the New Zealand wine sector by creating more opportunities to grow exports and diversify markets said Jeffery Clarke, general manager Advocacy at New Zealand Winegrowers. “Extending the coverage of quality free trade agreements and reducing non-tariff-barriers will ensure the wine industry continues to benefit from the open and rules-based trading conditions that have underpinned our success,” said Clarke. “We also welcome the investment of an additional $91 million into the government’s trade architecture to make sure New Zealand can deliver on the aspirations of the trade agenda.”
