24 March 2021

Exports and imports were both down in February
2021 compared with the previous February, Stats NZ said today.

The value of total goods exported fell $416
million compared with the same period last year. Exports were down to all
New Zealand’s top trading partners except China, which saw an increase
of $369 million from February 2020.

“Last year, we saw trading restrictions
with China and higher than usual beef exports to the United States in February.
In February 2021, exports to China increased comparatively, whereas exports
to the United States and other countries have decreased,” international
trade manager Alasdair Allen said.
