The Trade Barriers Helpdesk has been set up to help you effectively tackle trade barriers that you may currently be experiencing in an offshore market.

Research suggests these barriers may be three times more costly for New Zealand businesses than tariffs and we are here to assist. When we receive your enquiry, we will examine the particular details and identify the government agency that is best placed to address it. We will then work to unlock the issue that you have raised with us.

The Trade Barriers Helpdesk is jointly operated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment, New Zealand Customs, Ministry for Primary Industries, Education New Zealand, and New Zealand Trade & Enterprise.
