Kia ora and welcome to the website of the European Union's Delegation to New Zealand.
Established in Wellington in May 2004, the Delegation provides information to New Zealanders about the European Union, its policies and activities; and acts as a conduit for regular exchanges with the New Zealand government. Each year we undertake specific activities to inform New Zealanders on the latest developments to do with the European Union. Everything from the euro and education to trade policy and relations with New Zealand.
