Fran O'Sullivan On China and US FTAs

Fran O'Sullivan analyses the state of the China-NZ FTA and speculates on possible developments on the US FTA front in today's NZ Herald. Like The Hive she doesn't quite have a clear picture of whether the US is thinking of a purely bilateral deal or joining the Trans Pacific Economic Partnership (P4). On China, we think that all issues have been resolved and that the talks are substantively over. Fran is suggesting that there is one more round of negotiations to go.
