President Shri Pranab Mukherjee of India has arrived in New Zealand for a three-day visit […]

Mr Key has said the visit would be a good opportunity to continue to talk trade.

In 2011 Mr Key launched the NZ Inc India Strategy, a plan for India to become a core trade, economic and political partner for New Zealand.

Negotiations for a free trade agreement with India started in April 2010 and the last round finished in February 2015.

More than $1 billion in goods were traded between the two countries in 2014, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

More than 11,000 Indian students came to study in New Zealand in 2012, and another 29,000 Indian tourists visited that year.

There are also more than 160,000 people of Indian origin living in New Zealand.

Ahead of the visit, Indian media said several agreements were expected to be signed during the visit covering economic co-operation, education and connectivity.

This is the first time an Indian head of state has visited New Zealand, and Key is meeting with him this afternoon.  No rest for Mr “Working for New Zealand”.
