Digital Trade Policy – what is it, and what does it mean for you?
Digital technology touches nearly every aspect of our lives and has had a real impact on the way we trade - no less so in recent months given the COVID19 pandemic. We want the international digital economy to operate, and be governed, in a way that supports New Zealand firms and the continuation of free and open trade.

Through this webinar, we will share what MFAT is working on to support New Zealand’s trade recovery and what we’re doing on international digital trade policy. It’s also a chance for us to hear your experiences - to help inform our digital trade work going forward.

In this webinar the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade will:
- Provide a high-level overview of New Zealand’s trade policy and COVID-19 trade recovery strategy.
- discuss what we are doing on digital trade (including FTA negotiations with the UK and EU, the World Trade Organisation, as well as the recently agreed Digital Economy Partnership Agreement with Singapore and Chile);
- highlight emerging issues where we need your ongoing feedback to make the most of digital trade rules for business; and
- set out how you can get involved.

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session facilitated by NZTech. This is an opportunity to interact directly with the negotiators.
