UKTI New Zealand is reaching out to UK companies new to exporting by holding a webinar

This is to highlight the business opportunities for UK companies in this small, but potentially valuable market.

New Zealand may be a small market, but this can have advantages for those new to exporting, especially with the many business and cultural similarities between the UK and NZ.

In the Corruption Perceptions Index (2012), New Zealand is rated the least corrupt country in which to do business and also one of the easiest in which to do business by the World Bank (2013), which makes it a fantastic place for companies new to exporting. NZ has a stable political environment and the economy is doing well compared to many in the OECD.

Opportunities are diverse. New Zealand can be the ideal test market for niche and high value products or services or there may be a huge opportunity for those companies involved in the construction and infrastructure sectors due to the massive rebuild project of Christchurch city.

Join the upcoming webinar to find out where the opportunities are in New Zealand and what help is available to you as a UK company. Also learn about upcoming trade missions.
