FTA with Malaysia concluded

June 2nd, 2009 at 8:44 am by David Farrar

As the USA and Europe goes protectionist (or remains it), thank God for Asia. has just announced the FTA with Malaysia has been concluded.

is our seventh largest trading partner – last year we exported nearly a billion dollars worth of goods to with two-way trade worth nearly three billion. Goods exports alone have grown 34 per cent a year since 2005.

I didn’t realise they were 7th.

With NZ First out of Parliament, the only party that will vote against will probably be the Greens.

    I am glad we’re in the Asian trade corridor, it’s shaping up as being the economic powerhouse of the 22nd century.
