The Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) is a services-only trade agreement that aims to build on existing World Trade Organisation rules that apply to trade and investment in services. 23 economies are involved in the negotiation, including the European Union. These economies account for 63 percent of New Zealand’s total services exports ($13 billion) and around 80 percent of our commercial services exports.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade will be holding public discussion sessions on TiSA in Auckland at 5pm on 28 June 2016. The meetings are open to Māori, business, NGOs and all other interested members of the public to learn more about this important agreement.

To register to attend the meeting, email the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade at serviceexports@mfat.govt.nz by 20 June or click here for more information.
