Meeting the EU Ambassador to New Zealand, Nina Obermaier, 17 Feb. 2020
20 February 2020
NZSBA members were delighted to meet Nina Obermaier, the EU’s Ambassador to New Zealand, based in Wellington. Nina spoke passionately, to an engaged business audience, about the EU’s priorities in New Zealand in 2020, focussing on the cooperation between the New Zealand Europe Business Council, relevant EU Business Associations, including NZSBA (and their members) and the EU Delegation.
She encouraged New Zealand businesses to share with her their priorities, and points of interest and friction, for the EU NZ FTA negotiations. She said business views are most compelling when aggregated, and sent through a business association (rather than an individual feedback).
