The Prime Minister is set to roll out the welcome mat to New Zealand on her trade delegation to Asia. 

Jacinda Ardern is leading a trade delegation to Singapore this morning. 

She'll then head to Japan later this week. 

Asia New Zealand Foundation Executive Director Simon Draper told Tim Dower they're both countries we have pretty good broad relationships with already. 

“We already are exporting quite a lot to them, so I think when she says ‘open for business’ she’s really talking about tourists and business people coming here.” 

Travellers from Singapore and Japan will be able to come here from the second of May.
