Claims of Right to Live and Work[edit]

The article claimed the CER provided a right to live and work in the other country. I searched the text of the CER and could see no such provision. The Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement had been in effect for 10 years by the time the CER came into force and already provided a right to work and live so it is not suprising the CER did not address this issue.

Signing[edit]

Malcolm Fraser lost the election on 5 March 1983, and Hawke was sworn in on 11 March. How could Fraser have signed the CERTA treaty as Prime Minister on 28 March? User talk:Kewpid 27 February 2006

According to http://www.dfat.gov.au/geo/new_zealand/anz_cer/anz_cer_pic.html it was signed by Lionel Bowen and Laurie Francis, so I've corrected the article. Evil Monkey - Hello 01:26, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for that. A bit worrying that some official government sources are wrong Kewpid 09:51, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Merged from New Zealand Australia Free Trade Agreement[edit]

I merged the two articles together because there was barely any information in the other article and in fact was already more in this article that that one.

I thought it would be abbreviated NZAFTA, but it a quick search seems to confirm NAFTA - how confusing.
