Review of existing access for horticultural products, seafood and sawn timber to Australia and New Zealand
Australia and New Zealand are considered the Pacific’s largest export markets for fresh and processed horticultural products. While many commodities from Pacific Island countries have market access protocols in place, they have not been used frequently and the level of compliance and awareness surrounding them is variable.
This review intends to investigate opportunities to use and strengthen existing access where feasible. Due to the extent of the work required with multiple stakeholders and complexities regarding available data, the review was conducted in several stages. 248 commodities have been examined, made up of 104 fresh commodities and 144 processed commodities. Part 2 of the report provides a summary and analysis of outputs from the first stage of the review.
