Trade Minister Damien O’Connor is about to fly home after a week of negotiations with UK and EU Ministers. The pressure has been on for some result after Australia signed a Free Trade Agreement with the UK ten days ago. Damien O’Connor is feeling positive about the state of negotiations but says there is still a long way to go before any final agreement. One area of contention with the EU include a desire to protect 2000 geographic food and beveridge products, which would stop NZ producers using names like Gruyere, Port, Parmesan, Prosciutto and Champagne.
