MPI seeks submissions on proposed amendments to the Kiwifruit Export Regulations
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is seeking feedback on proposals to amend the Kiwifruit Export Regulations 1999. The proposals are outlined in a discussion document released today.
“This is the first comprehensive review of the Regulations since they were enacted,” says Jarred Mair, MPI’s Acting Deputy Director-General Policy and Trade.
“The current regulations have enabled New Zealand’s kiwifruit industry to compete effectively on the international stage. In 2015, New Zealand exported kiwifruit to 50 countries, valued at $1.003 billion.
“New Zealand’s domestic and global trading markets have changed markedly since 1999, and so has our kiwifruit industry. While the current Regulations are generally operating well, we are proposing to fine-tune aspects of their operation to enable the kiwifruit industry to take advantage of emerging opportunities for growth.”
The proposals have been developed in response to the industry’s own review of its institutions and operations through the Kiwifruit Industry Strategy Project (KISP). MPI also commissioned independent review of KNZ to inform the proposals outlined in the discussion document.
Copies of the discussion document, the independent review of KNZ, and information about how to make a submission can be found on the consultation page on MPI’s website (www.mpi.govt.nz). Consultation closes on Friday, 25 March 2016.
