Gulf FTA Good News For NZ Dairy

03 November 2009

NEW ZEALAND - The Dairy Companies Association of New Zealand Executive Director Simon Tucker said yesterday that the completion of FTA negotiations with the Gulf Co-operation Council would boost New Zealand’s dairy exports into the Gulf region.

“The countries of the Gulf region are an important market for New Zealand’s dairy exporters with sales worth approximately $750 million in the 2008/09 year.

"The industry expects to make substantial gains through preferential market access to the GCC and leverage off growing dairy consumption in the region.”

“It is great news to see the Government adding this new agreement to a growing portfolio of FTAs for New Zealand.”
