LONDON Oct 17 Britain and New Zealand agreed on
Monday to set up regular trade policy talks to help push for
greater global trade liberalisation and reform as Britain leaves
the European Union, trade minister Liam Fox said.
"In leaving the EU, we have the opportunity to drive even
greater openness and put Britain at the forefront of global
trade," Fox said in a statement after meeting New Zealand's
minister of trade, Todd McClay.
"This new trade policy dialogue reflects a strong political
commitment from New Zealand and the UK to take the lead in
pushing for greater global trade liberalisation and reform and I
look forward to working closely with them."
