This text explores the link between trade and the environment which has become an important national issue for all countries, in particular those countries which have undergone lengthy periods of trade and investment liberalization programmes. Despite the critical importance of trade-environment issues, less is known about the linkages between the two. This book presents a New Zealand perspective as a case-study of global interest for two reasons. Firstly, many countries both developed and developing are taking the New Zealand economic reforms as a model for restructuring their economies. Secondly, New Zealand is going to become a member of APEC, together with 17 other countries in the area by 2010 (developed countries) and 2020 (developing countries). The authors aim to contribute to the debate and to assist in the process of reconciliation of trade and environmental policies for sustainable development within the context of APEC integration.
