NZ Trade Minister David Parker seeks urgency for China free trade agreement upgrade

Trade Minister David Parker and Commerce Minister Zhong Shan have directed officials to complete negotiations on the upgrade of the China free trade deal as soon as possible.

The directive came during talks between Parker and Zhong in Beijing.

"We both agreed that in order to make good on the commitments that have been made by Premier Li and Prime Minister Ardern that we conclude the upgrade to the free trade agreement as soon as possible," said Parker. "That we instruct officials to progress that as soon as possible."

The next round of negotiations on the FTA upgrade have been scheduled for early May in Wellington.
