Robert Muldoon signs CER

Prime Minister Robert Muldoon signs the Closer Economic Relations (CER) agreement in December 1983, watched by Australian High Commissioner James Webster (standing), Australian Deputy Prime Minister Doug Anthony (on the screen) and Minister of Trade and Industry Hugh Templeton (seated, left). CER replaced the earlier New Zealand Australia Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It represented a new effort by New Zealand to reduce or eliminate tariffs with other countries, and to find markets to replace Britain, which had joined the EEC.
