New Zealand’s relationship with India took a significant step forward during Trade and Export Growth and Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor’s three-day visit to New Delhi. Damien O’Connor says We can learn from our Aussie mates whose sustained contact between ministers at all levels has been the key. Australia this year secured a free trade agreement with India with 85% of Australian exports there now tariff free. Mr O’Connor met his counterpart Commerce and Industry Minister, Piyush Goyal and worked out some key priorities during his talks in New Delhi: They include upgrading Air Services and code-sharing flight opportunities between Auckland and New Delhi and progressing primary sector partnerships across agriculture and horticulture. Damien O’Connor now travels to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to meet the Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and Ministerial counterparts.
