Cullen: Closures Not To Do With FTA

Michael Cullen has entered the debate over the link between the Thailand and China FTAs and the closure of some of Fisher and Paykel's operations. This is an interesting article in the NZ Herald. Cullen righly questions the importance of a 5% tariff for F&P. But Bongard seems to be denying Phil Goff's version of F&P's position on the China FTA when F&P were last consulted. Was this consultation done by Goff or officials?
