India seeks New Zealand’s cooperation for dairy industry

India seeks New Zealand’s cooperation for dairy industryPrime Minister Narendra Modi sought New Zealand’s cooperation in the dairy industry during a bilateral meeting with his New Zealand counterpart John Key.

“The prime minister talked about our interest in having dairy technology from New Zealand,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said at a media briefing.

Modi’s meeting with Key was held on the sidelines of the fourth and final edition of the biennial Nuclear Security Summit, the first of which was held in 2010.

“As you know, New Zealand is one of the world leaders in food processing. Prime minister said that India is one of the world’s largest producers of milk,” Swarup said.

Modi said that when it came to processing milk, India was not too good and New Zealand could find a very good market in India since the food processing industry has been enabled to obtain 100 percent foreign direct investment (FDI).

Discussions between the Indian and New Zealand prime ministers also involved trade issues. “The New Zealand prime minister said that they had concluded a very successful FTA (free trade agreement) with China and he was very keen on signing an FTA with India as well,” Swarup said. Leaders of 53 nations and four international organisations were attending the Nuclear Security Summit, at Washington, USA.
