A new trade deal between the United States and China has sparked some concern about just how it might affect New Zealand.

The signing of an initial trade deal will roll back some tarriffs and increase the amount China buys from the US, particulary in agricultural products.

New Zealand is currently the largest foreign supplier of agricultural products to China.
