Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA) Northern - Ratification of CPTPP excellent news

Ratification of CPTPP excellent news

31 Oct 2018
EMA says confirmation of Australia’s ratification of CPTPP is excellent news for the exporting community, and New Zealand in general.

The Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) now has the quorum required to move it forward.

“Free trade agreements such as the CPTPP are vital for our exporting community and economy,” says Kim Campbell, CEO, EMA.

“I congratulate the New Zealand representatives and negotiators involved who have progressed CPTPP to this stage.

“As an economy of 4.7 million people we need reliable access to other markets accompanied by favourable terms of trade, and this is what the CPTPP will deliver.

“It gives our exporters access to significant markets such as Japan, Canada and Mexico, which previously we did not have.

“Trade is one of the key building blocks for a connected, vibrant economy,” says Mr Campbell.​
