New Zealand and Taiwan 紐西蘭與台灣

Our relationship with Taiwan

While we do not maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan, we do have a vibrant trading, economic and cultural relationship. We’re both members of APEC, the World Trade Organisation (WTO), a number of fisheries conventions and the Asian Development Bank. Taiwan is an important source of imports, tourism and investment, and an important export market for New Zealand.

As well as trade, we enjoy extensive people-to-people links. There are employment opportunities for New Zealanders in Taiwan, particularly in teaching, and the number of art and cultural exchanges is growing. Many Taiwanese have migrated to New Zealand since the 1990s, and we have a particularly strong Taiwanese population in Auckland. Tourism, education and business links have strengthened since a three-month visa waiver was introduced in November 2009.

Trade

Taiwan is our 7th-largest goods export market and 16th-largest source of imports as at April 2021. Our dairy, meat, fruit, seafood and forest products are very popular with the Taiwanese and we’re their largest supplier of dairy products as well as cherries.

New Zealand has an agreement on Economic Cooperation with the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu which was signed in 2013. Tariffs are being rapidly eliminated, opening up significant trading opportunities.

我們與臺灣的關係

雖然我們與臺灣沒有外交關係,但我們之間擁有生氣勃勃的貿易、經濟、和文化關係。我們都是亞太經合會議(APEC)、世界貿易組織(WTO)、多項漁業公約、和亞洲開發銀行的成員。對紐西蘭而言,臺灣是很重要的進口來源、觀光與投資、和主要出口市場。

除了貿易以外,我們之間還有廣泛的人際連結。紐西蘭人在臺灣有很好的就業機會,尤其是在教學領域。臺紐之間的藝術及文化交流也日益活絡。1990年代以來,已有許多臺灣人移民紐西蘭。尤其在奧克蘭,我們有大量的臺裔人口。自從2009年11月實施三個月免簽證以來,臺紐之間的觀光、教育、及商業聯繫更大為增強。

貿易

截至2021年4月為止,臺灣是我們的第7大出口市場和第16大進口來源地。我們的乳製品、肉類、水果、海鮮、和林產品,非常受到臺灣人的歡迎。我們是臺灣最大的乳製品和櫻桃供應國。

2013年,紐西蘭與臺澎金馬個別關稅領域(中華台北)簽署了經濟合作協定。之後,關稅迅速取消,為雙方開啟大量貿易機會。
