      p“New Zealands relationship with the United States is one of our most enduring and significant. This mission will feature political and security engagement as well as tourism and trade promotion,” Ardern said in a statement on Monday.p

      pBilateral trade between the countries was worth about NZ18.5 billion 12 billion in 2021, with annual growth averaging 5 over the past 15 years, official data showed. p

      pU.S. travellers were New Zealands thirdlargest tourism market, forming 10 of total arrivals before the emergence of COVID19. p

      p“With travellers planning their visits months before coming in the New Zealand summer, now is the right time to be visible in the U.S. market letting Americans know we are open for business and travel,” Ardern said.p

      pNew Zealands closure of its border to noncitizens in March 2020 helped keep COVID19 numbers relatively low. Ardern early this month said the country would fully reopen its border from the end of July. p

      pArdern, who will leave on Monday evening after recovering from a recent COVID19 infection, will meet U.N. SecretaryGeneral Antonio Guterres in New York and senior members of the Senate in Washington, DC. She will also deliver Harvard Universitys commencement address in Boston.p
