New Zealand is a party to several Free Trade Agreements (SAAs) around the world. We are working together for freer global and regional trade through the WTO and APEC. New Zealand`s economy is a market economy heavily dependent on international trade, mainly with Australia, the United States of America, China and Japan. Highly dependent on tourism and agricultural exports, it has only small manufacturing and high-tech components. Economic reforms in recent decades have removed many barriers to foreign investment and the World Bank has hailed New Zealand as the most business-friendly country in the world . Regional and bilateral free trade agreements have become an important part of New Zealand`s international trade policy. New Zealand has taken advantage of free trade agreements, also known as closer economic partnerships, to liberalize trade between economies. A closer Economic Partnership Agreement with Thailand was negotiated in 2004 and implemented in 2005. Negotiations for a free trade agreement with Chile, Brunei and Singapore, known as the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership, were concluded in 2005. Negotiations on other agreements with Malaysia began in 2006, but could not be concluded.
The historic free trade agreement with China was signed in Beijing in April 2008.  AWARE of the importance of agricultural, horticultural and fishery products for international trade and trade between New Zealand and Canada, and deciding to facilitate and promote such trade for mutual benefit; Singapore is also a party to the ASEAN-Australia Agreement on the New Zealand Free Trade Area (AANZFTA), the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (P4) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (CPTPP). The rules of origin provisions of the new ANZSCEP Protocol take over the most commercial rules possible in these agreements and incorporate them into the new PSR timetable provided for in the Protocol.
