It is important to note that India and New Zealand have had diplomatic ties since 1952. According to the Ministry of External Affairs, the two countries have good ties that go back to the Commonwealth, parliamentary democracy, and the English language. New Zealand made India a priority country in its “Opening Doors to India” program in 2011. They did the same thing again in 2015.

David Pines, New Zealand’s High Commissioner to India, said on February 13 that both countries are trying to get rid of trade barriers and find ways to boost demand.

It was worth USD 1 billion in trade between India and New Zealand in 2022–23. Indian trade is New Zealand’s eleventh most important trade partner.

Both countries’ governments think “a lot better could be done,” Pine said, adding that the current focus is on getting the business groups of the two countries to work together to find trade opportunities.

“There is still not a lot of trade in goods between the two countries.” Each way costs around a billion dollars a year. Both countries think we could do a lot better a lot of the time. Getting the business groups to talk to each other is the first thing we are really focused on. “Getting them to talk to each other more often by getting them together,” he said.

When asked what was being done to get rid of the trade barriers, he said, “We’ve done a lot of work on regulations that were affecting our exports of logs to India, making sure that India’s very valid concerns that wood come to you without bringing pests with it are met.”

“We did similar work to make it possible for Indian mangoes to be brought into or sent to New Zealand, which makes me happy when I get home.” “I’ll be able to get nice things,” he said.
