New Zealand Prime Minister John Key is on a five-day visit to China. His key mission is to upgrade the comprehensive strategic partnership with China. China and New Zealand entered a bilateral Free Trade Agreement eight years ago, and now both sides are ready to upgrade the FTA to a new level. This will allow New Zealand exports, such as dairy, to flow unfettered into China, while China can also have better access to investment projects in New Zealand. But the bilateral relationship is about far more than just trade. The New Zealand Center in Peking University, for instance, received a further boost this week, as the two countries' Prime Ministers witnessed the signing of a MOU designed to improve educational exchanges.

So how can China and New Zealand expand trade ties for mutual benefit? How can both sides enhance the quality of exchanges in other fields, such as education?
