About New Zealand's Free Trade Agreements

New Zealand has free trade agreements with a number of countries:

  • Australia (CER - Closer Economic Relations)
  • China
  • South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) - including Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam
  • Thailand
  • Singapore
  • Brunei
  • Chile
  • Hong Kong
New Zealand is the first country in the world to complete a free trade agreement with China. This means:
 
  • zero duty rates or significantly reduced rates on imports; and
  • elimination of tariffs on most of New Zealand's exports to China, which can be a major advantage for international businesses operating in NZ.
Under the Australia New Zealand CER:
 
  • Australian products receive preferential tariff treatment; and
  • Australian made products, with over 50% Australian content, are not subject to tariffs, and import licenses are no longer required to import goods into New Zealand.
