Retaining NZ's Competitiveness

Media Release Wednesday, October 3rd, 2001

ECONOMIC INTELLIGENCE BRIEFING: "Retaining New Zealand's competitive position in the new trading order" - in association with the National Business Review, and the Export Institute

The uncertainties brought about in the world trading environment post September 11th have led the Employers & Manufacturers Association and the Export Institute to host a major business briefing one month on October 11th, on what business can expect from the changed economic and market outlook.

"Retaining New Zealand's Competitive Position in the new trading order" is the theme of the Briefing at the Carlton Hotel, Auckland, in association with the National Business Review, commencing 7:30am to midday.

The EMA decided to host the Economic Intelligence Briefing under urgency for businesses to determine how they might best respond to the imminent changes to New Zealand's trading fortunes.

"We believe the business community is seeking clear and concise information on the new international order to respond strategically, and proactively with confidence," said EMA's chief executive, Alasdair Thompson.

"The aims of the Briefing are to clarify what fundamental changes have occurred as a result of the attacks on America, their international economic and political ramifications.

"The EMA Briefing brings together the foremost economic analysis and advice, and the intelligence gathered by New Zealand's diplomatic posts around the world.

"We have obtained the very finest range of expertise at short notice to address this important summit. They are:

* Dr Don Brash, Governor of the Reserve Bank of NZ:

"Central banking in "interesting times"

* John Edwards, Chief Economist of HSBC for Australia & New Zealand: "Revising the economic and business outlook"

* John Woods, Deputy Secretary of Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade and NZ ambassador designate to US: "Business and consumer perspectives from New Zealand's posts overseas"
