"This report is the result of an urgent inquiry by the Waitangi Tribunal into Ma?ori claims concerning the New Zealand Government's ratification of the Trans-Pacific partnership Agreement (the TPPA). The TPPA is described as a free-trade agreement, but it contains provisions that reach beyond traditional trade agreements. At the heart of the claims is a concern that New Zealand's entry into the TPPA will diminish the Crown's capacity to fulfill its Treaty of Waitangi obligations to Ma?ori. It was claimed that the clause in the TPPA allowing the Crown to give Ma?ori more favourable treatment (the exception clause) was not adequate to protect their interests. It was also claimed that the Crown's consultation process fell far short of the Government's partnership obligations under the Treaty. The claimants sought an urgent Tribunal hearing and a recommendation that the Crown immediately halt progress towards signing the TPPA until there had been full engagement with Ma?ori and steps had been taken to ensure that mechanisms were in place to provide that the Crown could meet its obligations to Ma?ori under the Treaty of Waitangi. They also sought the immediate release of the draft text of the TPPA. The Tribunal found that the exception clause did offer a reasonable degree of protection to Ma?ori interests and that the development of the clause was a credit to successive New Zealand governments. The Tribunal also suggested that there should be further dialogue between the Crown and Ma?ori on the wording of any exception clause for future free trade agreements and that improvements be made to routine engagement processes"--Publisher information.… (more)
