Investment in the U.S.

A Discussion with the Honorable Steven Joyce, Minister for Economic Development of New Zealand, and Mark Gilbert, U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand


Left: Steven Joyce, Right: Mark Gilbert


From a vast domestic market, to a transparent legal system, to the most innovative companies in the world, America is the place for business. The United States is one of New Zealand's top trade and investment partners, and the two countries have signed a bilateral trade and investment framework agreement. The Honorable Steven Joyce, New Zealand Minister for Economic Development and the Honorable Mark Gilbert, U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, join Asia Society for a conversation about investment and the TPP. New Zealand’s investment in the United States and the SelectUSA inward investment program bolster economic ties between the two nations. They will also discuss business opportunities available in New Zealand and how the TPP may shift trading dynamics between New Zealand and the United States
