New Zealand is a trading nation. It has a huge stake in ensuring its relationships with its trading partners, negotiating trade agreements and supporting arrangements that keep the world safe for travellers and trade. These requirements alone justify the huge investment in New Zealand's foreign policy establishment. But budget constraints and new international developments have combined to place a strain on the resources available to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. We must look at new ways of providing the representation New Zealand needs in a changing world. New approaches, too, are needed in the delivery of international aid. The government has resolved to meet these challenges in the years ahead.
