The Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison is currently visiting New Zealand.

Morrison touched down in Queenstown on Sunday to start his two day trip to New Zealand.

His trip is part of the annual trans-Tasman talks between Jacinda Ardern and him.

This is one of Jacinda Ardern’s first face to face leaders’ meetings since the Covid-19 pandemic began.

The last time the pair met was in Sydney last year before the pandemic hit either country.

The two leaders will discuss a number of issues including the trans-Tasman bubble, the Pacific, Covid-19, immigration and also China.

Morrison was welcomed by Ngāi Tahu with a powhiri, including a reo version of the Australian classic Waltzing Matilda, and the traditional jokes about pavlova and winning on the sports field.
