Fran O’Sullivan’s Opinion
Regardless the outcome from the TPP, it has secured a $2.7B a year for New Zealand. The trades and deals that have been under negotiations for the past several months have granted somewhat of an access to NZ dairy producers to the major consumers markets such as Japan, US and Mexico. This achievement has been accomplished by Tim Groser, current NZ politician and former diplomat. But not everything that shines is gold, as the deal did not reach the expected impact. However, it’s still a decent income. Mr Groser expects to see better outcomes in the near future as tariffs from particular products in the dairy market are eliminated.
