China has become New Zealand’s second largest trading partner and our largest export destination. Prime Minster John Key and Chinese President Xi Jinping together announced the goal to continue this growth and target two-way trade of $30 billion by 2020.

Tremendous potential exists for our two countries to further open the door to doing business together.
