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.

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.
