Until the mid-1970s the United States took a significantly higher proportion of New Zealand's exports by value than the proportion of goods New Zealand imported from the US. However, by the mid-1990s the relationship had reversed. Imports from the US reached a high in 1995 of over 20% of the value of New Zealand's imports. Throughout the 2000s the United States was New Zealand's third-largest trading partner.
