Donald Trump could affect NZ exports
Newly elected US president Donald Trump could hinder New Zealand’s prosperity if he goes through with his policies, BusinessNZ warns. BusinessNZ chief executive Kirk Hope said New Zealand’s prosperity relied on open and free trading of export products. If the US, which was New Zealand’s third largest export market, were to take a more closed approach to trade in the future, New Zealand export returns could be affected. “Trade with the US earns New Zealand over $5 billion a year in products including meat, dairy and wine, and over $2 billion a year in services,” Hope said.
