8:12 Insight: New Zealand’s Love Affair with China
New Zealand has set ambitious new targets for its trade relationship with China. But is this achievable given the fallout from last year's Fonterra botulism scare?

Demelza Leslie travelled to China with the Prime Minister and investigates if the new trade targets could become a reality.
