New Zealand’s Minister for Trade Negotiations and Agriculture, Mr. Hon Jim Sutton, arrived in the Czech Republic on a mission to support economic relationships and education. Judging from the relaxed atmosphere at the reception following the seminar, relationships are quite close despite the considerable distance between the two countries.
