Premier Li Keqiang met with New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key on Nov 21 on the sidelines of the ASEAN meetings, highlighting negotiations on the upgrading of their free trade agreement (FTA).


The Premier told Key that China and New Zealand are complementary in their economic competitive edges and have huge potential in cooperation.

China stands ready to strengthen dialogue, communication and cooperation with New Zealand to inject fresh momentum into their bilateral relations, Premier Li said, adding that the two countries should strengthen their policy coordination and dialogue and push forward the negotiations on the upgrading of their FTA.

China encourages Chinese enterprises to participate in the infrastructure construction projects in such areas as traffic and post-disaster rebuilding in New Zealand, and hopes that convenient access can be provided, Premier Li said.
