    August 14, 2015 - Security Message to American citizens - August 15 march protesting the Tran-Pacific Partnership agreement
    The U.S. Consulate General in Auckland alerts U.S. Citizens that, according to the New Zealand Police, on August 15, 2015, a march protesting the Tran-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) will take place at 1:00 p.m.  The march will begin in Aotea Square and move down Queen Street onto Commerce Street.  Approximately 8,000 people are expected to attend the protest. We urge citizens to avoid the protest march route as even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational.  We remind citizens to always exercise caution when in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.

    August 2015 - Admiral Scott Swift, Commander of the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet visits NZ

    This weekend, Admiral Scott Swift, Commander of the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet, will begin a three-day visit to New Zealand to meet with New Zealand Navy leadership.

    The Commander’s visit is part of a regional tour and he says that routine meetings of this nature are invaluable.

    “The U.S. and New Zealand Navies team up in a number of areas, including disaster relief, humanitarian assistance, and maritime security in the Pacific,” says Admiral Swift. “Preparing for crisis conditions and enhancing relationships are priorities for PacFleet. When we share ideas and experience by participating in multi-lateral missions and exercises, we are all more effective.  This makes us all better prepared to work together to help out our regional neighbors when they need us.” [Media Release]

The U.S. Embassy is proud to support the forum along with Government of New Zealand.

    The Ambassador of the United States to New Zealand and Samoa, Mark Gilbert, said, “The Partnership Forum is a great opportunity to build on our longstanding friendship and discuss how we can work together in the future on a range of issues important to us all.” In a press release, Foreign Minister Murray McCully welcomed the start of the US/NZ Partnership: “The U.S. is one of New Zealand’s most important partners and events like this reinforce the strong links between our two nations.” beehive.govt.nz.

    US Secretary of State John Kerry - On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States of America, it is my pleasure to extend our warmest regards, this April 25th, to the people of Australia and New Zealand on this very special Anzac Day.
