New Zealand’s Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China includes a dispute process. “It is a normal part of any FTA,” points out Auckland Chamber of Commerce head Michael Barnett.

If a complaint has been made then there is a process both countries are required to go through. Both countries would be looking into it, said Mr Barnett.

He was commenting on a news report that China was threatening retaliatory measures against New Zealand over alleged dumping of cut-price steel on the New Zealand market.
