China is our fourth largest trading partner, taking over $1.6 billion of New Zealand's merchandise exports and over $1 billion of services. China's middle class is now estimated to be more than 100 million people and growing - which will fuel the demand for New Zealand's agricultural products. There should also be gains to New Zealand's manufacturers and services operators.
New Zealand-China Free Trade Agreement - NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

And hey let's face it - NZ really needs more Chinese influence (wtf?) What the hell is good about a free trade agreement with China for crying out loud? Isn't "The Warehouse" flooding enough slave labour 5 cent shitty products in as it is? Or perhaps there's a little more natural resource left in NZ to sell off?
