US - NZ Pacific Partnership Forum Shared Interests


18 January 2013

US - NZ 2013 Pacific Partnership Forum To Showcase Shared Interests, Leadership

Major Business and Government Leaders Expected at May 19 - 21 Event in Washington, DC

(Auckland, NZ / Washington, DC) The US - NZ 2013 Pacific Partnership Forum will be held in Washington, DC from May 19 - 21 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The Forum will bring together New Zealand and U.S. game-changing leaders from business, government, and non-profit organizations to explore the next opportunities for economic growth and cooperation.

Organized by the United States | New Zealand Council in Washington, DC and the NZUS Council in New Zealand, the two-day meeting will focus on the two countries’ shared interests and complementary visions for the future.

The success stories and vision of both NZ and US companies will be prominently featured.

"Today’s NZ - US relationship is about leadership, innovation and a readiness to be a catalyst for positive change in the world”, said William Maroni, president of the US | NZ Council.

“By showcasing examples of real innovation, next year’s Forum will help inform, inspire and shape the next generation of though leaders in business and public policy.”

The 2013 Forum will be the fifth gathering of its kind. It comes at a time when countries and companies will compete to discover, define and deliver the next opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region. The Forum also occurs at a time when newly-appointed Members of President Obama’s Cabinet and newly-elected Members of the U.S. Congress will be defining their goals for the next two to four years.


“Next May is likely to be a particularly important time in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations,” said Stephen Jacobi, Executive Director of the NZUS Council.

“The 2013 Pacific Partnership Forum will foster the type of dialogue that can help move TPP to a successful completion.”

New Zealand and the United States are influential global voices for open markets, regional growth and stability, individual freedoms, and a sustainable environment. The 2013 Forum will build on this legacy by focusing on Asia-Pacific issues. The program will include dynamic keynote presentations, diverse panel discussions, valuable networking opportunities, executive-level exchanges, and a variety of social and cultural activities.

Exclusive sponsorship opportunities to host specific portions of the Forum are available, and the event is open to interested parties. For more information, please contact 2013Forum@USNZcouncil.org.
