The New Zealand dollar is the currency that is used in New Zealand, as well as in the Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, and the Pitcairn Islands. It is often nicknamed “kiwi”. The currency replaced the New Zealand pound in 1967. It is about 10th most-traded currency in the world and is often used in carry trade because of relatively high interest rates in New Zealand. The major industry of New Zealand is agriculture, wool, meat and dairy products being the most important components of the sector. Australia is the main trading partner of New Zealand and China is the second-biggest.
