ExportNZ would like to congratulate Hon Todd McClay on his appointment as Minister for Trade, as well as his appointments as Minister of Agriculture, Minister of Forestry, and Associate Minister of Foreign Affairs. McClay will know our sector well having served as Minister for Trade between 2015 and 2017. We would also like to congratulate Nicola Grigg, on her appointment as Minister of State for Trade.
