6:26 am on 6 November 2012

The international wine trade is the focus of two meetings in Auckland.

An APEC wine regulatory forum has brought together more than 60 regulators and industry representatives from 15 Asia-Pacific countries.

They are discussing wine trade risk assessment and more co-ordinated approaches to certification.

The World Wine Trade Group meets on Tuesday. That involves government and industry representatives from eight countries who share a mutual interest in improving the international trade.
