Nation: David Parker on trade, APEC and globalisation

Trade and Export Growth Minister David Parker: Inclusive Trade Action Group meets in Port Moresby

New Zealand, Chile and Canada today reaffirmed a commitment to work together to advance trade that benefits all their citizens.

Trade and Export Growth Minister David Parker joined Chilean Foreign Minister Roberto Ampuero and Canadian Deputy Minister for International Trade Tim Sargent at a meeting of the Inclusive Trade Action Group (ITAG) during APEC Leaders’ Week in Papua New Guinea.

Trade is crucial to our economies but so is ensuring that the benefits that come from trade are shared by all,” David Parker said.

“The New Zealand Government’s Trade for All agenda ensures that our trade policy delivers for all New Zealanders.

“The meeting of ITAG members recommitted us to this goal and set out some specific objectives to advance inclusive trade in 2019, including building support among our CPTPP partners, and in the WTO and APEC.”

It follows the three countries’ Joint Declaration on Fostering Progressive and Inclusive Trade issued at the signing of the CPTPP in March this year.

    Parker says, ““The New Zealand Government’s Trade for All agenda ensures that our trade policy delivers for all New Zealanders.”

    Do interviewers ever ask: So, how exactly does ‘Trade for All’ deliver for all New Zealanders?

    Like … How does that work precisely?

    By allowing us to buy whatever we want from wherever and whomever we want?

    Let’s go sweatshop … Rusty stainless steel … flammable pyjamas …

    Or perhaps by centrally planning what we are allowed to buy from where and who?

    “SOCIALIST!!!”
