Scene + Herd: Podcasts from Beef + Lamb New Zealand

Beef + Lamb New Zealand’s Trade Policy programme

August 22, 2019

We’re joined by B+LNZ’s Esther Guy-Meakin, Manager – International Trade and Swetta Magan, Trade Policy Advisor to discuss the work their team does on behalf of beef and sheepmeat levypayers, and why trade policy isn’t about winning but rather about strong agreements. We discuss why levies are used to support this work, what has been achieved so far, what the team are currently working on for farmers and what they see as issues for the future. Topics include: CPTPP, tariffs, FTAs, Brexit, quotas, co-operation and collaboration by NZ Inc, deals and no-deals and why calm, stable and predictable trade is good for everyone.
