MFAT Economic Division study

Thomas Kensington made this Official Information request to Minister of Trade

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Minister of Trade should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Thomas Kensington

Dear Hon Tim Groser,

This request is under the Official Information Act.

In a speech delivered at the NZ China Center on Wednesday 2 July you referred to a study - "a more granular analysis of sectors of our export economy that were most 'trade exposed' to China" - that MFAT Economic Division did.

Could you please release the said study, including the source data used for the study?

Feel free to refer this request to MFAT should you deem it necessary.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Kensington

Minister of Trade

On behalf of Hon Tim Groser, thank you for your email.  Your
correspondence has been noted and will be recorded.

 

All correspondence, including email,  is routed through our mail tracking
process.  Although e-mail increases the speed of delivery, the
“behind-the-scenes” efforts of the Minister’s staff in responding to
mail cannot always provide the kind of speedy response users of email may
anticipate.

 

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important, if it is
obvious that you are writing only to express a personal view your opinion
will be noted but a response beyond this acknowledgement may not be sent.

 

Thank you again.
