New Zealand and
Viet Nam business ties
Since the establishment of New Zealand’s “Comprehensive Partnership” with Viet Nam in 2009, there have been regular political exchanges, strong growth in bilateral trade, expanded education links and the celebration of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations in 2015.
Today our relationship is characterised by expanding cooperation in areas such as agri-business, disaster management, aviation, tourism, defence and education. We have set ambitious goals for our relationship, including doubling two-way trade to US$1.7 billion by 2020 and elevating the status of the relationship to “Strategic Partnership”.
