France and Niue
Our relations with Niue are handled by our Embassy in New Zealand.
Emergency assistance was provided by France in 2004 after Cyclone Heta hit Niue, as part of the “Franz” tripartite agreements (France, Australia and New Zealand) providing for coordinated assistance for natural disasters in the South Pacific. France provided financial assistance to rebuild Niuean government buildings, alongside the New Zealand Aid Programme (NZAID) and the Niuean authorities.
Niue has been on the French list of non-cooperative States and territories in the area of taxation since 2010.
Niue was represented by its Minister of Natural Resources, Mr Billy Talagi, during the Fourth France-Oceania Summit (November 2015). Niue was represented by the Assembly Member Naea Michael Jackson during the second high-level dialogue on climate change organized in Nouméa by the Pacific Community, in the presence of the French President (May 2018).
