This Isn't Foreign Policy?

Have a read of this NZPA story from Beijing. Our own correspondent says that there is a huge front page in the China Daily and the Economic Daily has this FTA as front page news and contains a four page supplement. There was also ample TV coverage. This is very big news. New Zealand in China is being seen in a very positive light and the FTA is the reason. yet our Foreign Minister is going to vote against the deal and is able to bad mouth it???? Shame. There is a good blog from Tracy Watkins also.
