Trans-Pacific Partnership public lectures
Trans-Pacific Partnership public lectures – impacts for New Zealand and India
The New Zealand India Research Institute and the India New Zealand Business Council are co-hosting two public lectures at Victoria University of Wellington’s Government Buildings on 21 April.
The first will be given by Dr Amitendu Palit from the National University of Singapore. The topic will be India, APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) and TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership): Navigating a Complex Landscape.
Dr Palit is an economist specialising in international trade policies who has worked with the Indian Government for several years in the Ministry of Finance. He is a senior research fellow and research lead at the Institute of South Asian Studies.
The second lecture will be given by Mark Hargreaves and Michael Brown, partners at Wellington law firm AJ Park. The topic will be TPP in the New Zealand and Indian Contexts.
Their lecture will discuss the impact of the Trans Pacific Partnership on New Zealand’s intellectual property laws and suggest strategies for New Zealand exporters to protect and exploit their intellectual property and technology in the Indian market.
Together the two lectures will also give insights into India’s trade policies and the Indian Government’s desire to join APEC.
