Abstract

This report provides a discussion and recommendations regarding the New Zealand dairy industry’s involvement in Colombia with the aim of reducing poverty. The topic is of utmost relevance in view of the current negotiation between the Pacific Alliance and New Zealand, in particular, due to the concerns the dairy industry in Colombia has raised. However, many elements of this analysis also contribute to the literature on foreign direct investment in the agricultural sector as potential tools for poverty alleviation in rural areas in emerging markets. The work New Zealand has performed thus far in Colombia showcase the ideal research and development methodology required to estimate such outcomes. The two primary benefits to poverty alleviation from improving the dairy productivity are increases in employment and infrastructure.
