Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Go Global Partner

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade helps New Zealand exporters take advantage of global opportunities by offering practical advice and support, coordinating with other government agencies to resolve trade barriers, and negotiating and defending access to overseas markets. Exporters engage with our staff at posts, drawing on their in-country expertise, and with staff in our New Zealand offices. Our online tariff-finder allows businesses to compare tariffs in 156 markets. Exporters facing red tape, bottle-necks, unfair rules or regulations in international markets can seek assistance from MFAT and other government departments at tradebarriers.govt.nz.
