There was much media and protester interest in Round 15 of the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations that took place in Auckland from 3-12 December. What really happened? And what does this mean for the conclusion of negotiations? Find out here…
As we draw to the end of 2012, I wish you a safe and happy holiday season, and look forward to working with you further to make 2013 a fantastic year for New Zealand exports.

Our Export report sparks debate
Great to see our “Lifting Export Performance” report authored by NZIER appearing in articles and speeches around the country and sparking debate. This is the sort of reaction we were hoping for. On example is this article that appeared in the NZ Herald. It focuses on the question of how to keep high performing firms in NZ.
One of the other issues highlighted in the report that gained a lot of attention (such as this) is the population debate.
How big should NZ’s population be? The NZ Herald made that the poll of the day when the report was released. By the end of the day there were 6,660 votes. The choices were stay the same (35% of votes) or increase to 5 million (did not count that as that is pretty much business as usual). But if you added up the number that voted for an increase to 10 million, 15 million or any number, 40% of voters were in favour of growth. It’s also interesting to note that Australia is predicted to grow by 13 million by 2049 through fertility and net migration.
