NZ UK trade relations advanced in PM’s meeting

"It is important that all steps be taken to secure continuity and stability for our exporters through the Brexit process", says Ritchie.

She spoke with New Zealand media over the phone on Wednesday morning where she said she understood the domestic political reasons for some of the absences and regardless of who attended the big conversations were still being had.

Ms Ardern drew on her country's strong links with the United Kingdom and the two nations' shared history before saying the relationship must evolve and grow when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union on March 29.

New Zealand also welcomed the UK's interest in acceding to the CPTPP.

Ms Ardern arrived in London yesterday ahead of the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.

She said it was an opportunity to stop in London during a "very unsettled period" to emphasise her country's long and deep ties with the UK.

"The veterinary agreement would maintain for the longer term the present regulatory arrangements governing the export of animals and animal products - such as meat and dairy - to the United Kingdom when and if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union", he said.

Britain is one of New Zealand's biggest bilateral trading partners, and New Zealand imported goods and services worth 1.1 billion pounds ($1.34 billion) from Britain in 2015.

"Absolutely I'm a feminist, said Ms Ardern".

The meeting comes days after Mrs May survived a no-confidence vote after her Brexit deal was comprehensively rejected in Parliament.

Jacinda Ardern was also questioned about how she juggles running a country and being a mother, and whether she experiences "guilt".

Ms Ardern finishes her trip in Brussels, where the focus will be progressing a free trade agreement with Europe.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is said to have held a "secret meeting" with the Duchess of Sussex at Kensington Palace.

"He mentioned specifically his appreciation for New Zealand, his love of New Zealand's native birds, and in particular his love of the kākāpō. he also mentioned the work we'd done around reducing predators and pointed out that the knees of rats shake when New Zealand is near because of our success in tackling predators", she said. "But what will of course be required is, over time, more than that, a substantive, full, free trade agreement", he said.
