An important part of the work of MIA is to foster strong industry relationships with international counterparts. Developing these relationships supports the stable and constructive ties the New Zealand Government and individual companies have with offshore partners.

International Partners

Much of the international work in recent years has focused on deepening and maturing the industry’s relationships with China. The commercial relationships between New Zealand meat processors and exporters and their Chinese partners continue to develop. At the whole-of-industry level there has been an ongoing push by MIA to deepen relationships with our Chinese counterparts, and MIA has led annual major delegations of industry leaders to China since 2014.

MIA has advanced our political relationships with key organisations in China through signing a Memoranda of Understanding to support ongoing cooperation and partnership.
