New Zealand and UAE business ties
New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have a strong relationship, evidenced by New Zealand's early support of Expo 2020 Dubai and a long history of trade and bilateral cooperation.
The UAE is New Zealand's tenth largest trading partner, with two-way trade worth nearly $4 billion. New Zealand is a natural partner for the UAE in the food and beverage and agritech sectors in particular, offering both a trusted source of premium-quality food and technical expertise to help the UAE manage its water and food security challenges.
