New Zealand's trade with Africa

New Zealand's trade with Africa

Trade between African countries and New Zealand has grown substantially since 1990, when it involved only four nations – South Africa, Egypt, Morocco and Algeria – and was worth more than $100 million only with Algeria. In 2009 trade was taking place with 14 African nations, and was worth at least $100 million with Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Sudan, South Africa, Madagascar and Nigeria. Goods traded included salt, cocoa, coffee and paper bought by New Zealand, and dairy products bought by African nations.
