Pakistan and New Zealand
Pakistan and New Zealand have a common heritage as members of the British Commonwealth and have long-standing sporting linkages, especially in cricket and hockey. A memorable moment was the 1992 Cricket World Cup semi-final played between the two countries at Auckland.
New Zealand firms have supplied CNG equipment and other technologies to Pakistan. New Zealanders have been involved in the development of Pakistan’s dairy sector. A number of Pakistani PhD scholars study at New Zealand universities. Pakistani cotton products and rice are a familiar sight in New Zealand.
