The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) would like to invite Māori exporters and business leaders to a hui on 5 September to discuss proposed changes to the Export Controls regime.
The hui, facilitated by Te Taru White from Te Taumata, is an opportunity to better understand Aotearoa New Zealand’s export controls regime, and to discuss and give feedback on proposed changes.
The export controls regime aims to ensure Aotearoa New Zealand acts responsibly when exporting goods and technology which can be used for military purposes.
These exports may harm our security or national interests, contribute to human rights abuse, or contravene international humanitarian law.
Peter Noble, Senior Adviser on Counter-Proliferation in MFAT’s International Security and Disarmament Division, will join Te Taru as a key speaker.
He will explain and answer questions on export controls, its history, how the export controls team works, and what the proposed changes are.
In addition to attending the hui, or instead of attending the hui, you may also make a submission online.
The hui will be held via Zoom. You can join using the information below:
