  中新网11月1日电 据新西兰天维网报道,当地时间10月31日下午,新西兰总理杰辛达·阿德恩(Jacinda Ardern)宣布,从明年年初开始,海外投机者将无法购买新西兰房产。

  以下英文部分为新西兰总理杰辛达·阿德恩(Jacinda Ardern)政策问答原文。

  We are determined to make it easier for Kiwis to buy their first home so we are stopping foreign speculators buying houses and driving up prices.

  我们决定让新西兰首次购房者买房变得更加容易,所以我们决定阻止海外投机者购买新西兰房产炒高房价。

  政策将如何实现?

  That is why we are introducing an amendment to the Overseas Investment Act to classify residential housing as “sensitive”. This means non-residents or non-citizens cannot purchase existing residential dwellings.

  我们将通过修改现有的《海外投资法》(Overseas Investment Act),将民用住宅定义为敏感资产。这也意味着非新西兰居民或新西兰国籍人士将无法购买现有房产。

  政策将何时实现?

  We expect legislation to be introduced before Christmas and take effect immediately once passed early in 2018. This will fulfil one of our key 100 Day Plan pledges.

  我们计划在圣诞节之前提出具体的法律改变,2018年上半年通过后立即开始执行。这将是我们竞选时承诺的“百日维新”的关键部分。

  是否会违反已签署的FTA(自由贸易)协议?

  The advice we have had from officials is that we can give effect to the ban by a simple amendment to the Overseas Investment Act without breaching any agreement except the Singapore Closer Economic Partnership. The options with Singapore will be worked through.

  我们从相关官员那里得到的建议是,通过修改《海外投资法》( Overseas Investment Act),就可以在不违反已有协议的情况下,阻止海外买家购买新西兰房产。

  受影响的协议仅有“与新加坡更紧密的经贸伙伴关系”(Singapore Closer Economic Partnership),不过我们与新加坡的协议近期即将重启谈判(renegotiation soon),所以问题不大。

  是否会影响TPP协议?

  The proposed change means we can move our focus away from land issues at the negotiating table at APEC when negotiations on the TPP reach their final stages, and focus on Investor State Dispute Settlement clauses.

  今日提出的改变意味着在APEC(亚太经合组织)会议上,TPP谈判进入最后阶段时,新西兰政府可以在将主要的注意力,从土地问题转移到ISDS( investor state dispute settlement)问题上。所谓ISDS,即“投资者—国家争端解决”,指的是如果外国投资者的权益遭受东道国不法措施的侵害,其只能寻求母国的外交保护。

  We remain determined to do our utmost to amend the ISDS provisions of TPP. In addition, Cabinet has today instructed trade negotiation officials to oppose ISDS in any future free trade agreements.

  我们仍将竭尽全力修正TPP中关于ISDS的相关条款。今天内阁已经指示负责贸易谈判的工作人员,在未来的自由贸易谈判中反对ISDS条款。

  国会中各党派是否支持新政?

  The change we have announced today are supported by all parties to the government.

  我们今天宣布的新政策已经得到了现任政府中各党派的支持。

  澳大利亚人还能来新西兰买房吗?

  Australians will be exempt as New Zealanders are in Australia.

  澳大利亚人将会得到豁免,就像新西兰人在澳大利亚得到豁免一样。
