Prime Minister John Key today officially opened the new premises of the New Zealand Consulate-General in Dubai.

The new office will house the Consulate, and offices of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Immigration New Zealand, and the Ministry of Primary Industries.

“This new office reflects our continued commitment to develop a closer relationship with the Gulf region,” Mr Key says.

“It is a signal of New Zealand’s increased investment our growing footprint in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, and the wider region.”

Finalising the GCC-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is the next step in this story and working on completing that FTA is a priority of this trade mission.

“I appreciated the confirmation that the UAE supports the finalisation of the New Zealand GCC FTA, and I will continue to press New Zealand’s case throughout the Gulf.”

According to RNZN, negotiations for a deal ended in October 2009, but it was never signed off. Resistance from Saudi Arabia was a stumbling block to passing it.

New Zealand and the GCC countries have annual two-way trade of $4.8 billion, and are New Zealand’s fifth largest trading partner.
