The CER in Action: A Closer Look at Australia-NZ Trade Flows Since 1983
AbstractThis paper employs statistical and analytical methods to examine the manner in which trade between Australia and New Zealand has developed since the Closer Economic Relations (CER) Agreement of 1983. The strength and weaknesses of their economic structures are highlighted through the examination of the evolution of mutual trade and trade with the world, as well as the changes thereto over time. Empirical analysis finds that the nature of economic reforms in both countries have affected their mutual and global trade relationships and policy directives have been drawn from the findings.
