Pacific Trade Expo: Businesses from 25 Countries


7 December 2007

2008 Pacific Trade Expo to Host Businesses from 25 Pacific Island Countries

The New Zealand Pacific Business Council is hosting the 2008 Pacific Trade Expo at the Waitakere Trusts Stadium in Auckland on the 5th and 6th of March 2008. The Expo aims to achieve market growth for both New Zealand and Pacific Island businesses by way of reciprocal ‘two-way’ trade and investment.

The Expo is strongly supported by the New Zealand Government, the Pacific Islands Trade and Investment Commission, and three of the major Councils in the Auckland region (Auckland City, Manukau City and Waitakere City).

It is expected that representatives from the vast majority of the 25 Pacific Island countries will be participating. The Expo is the ideal venue to discuss trade opportunities, projects for possible investment and joint ventures.

The Expo will focus on maximising business outcomes for both sellers and buyers by ‘matching’ exhibitors with the relevant buyers or ‘decision-makers’, while promoting both New Zealand and Pacific Island goods and services.

Several workshops on relevant Pacific Trade matters will be held during the Expo; and as part of the NZPBC’s focus on commercial outcomes, opportunities will be available for private one-on-one meetings.

To enhance the creative element of the Expo, a Pacific Fusion Fashion show and Pacific Art Exhibition will be held during the Expo.

The New Zealand Pacific Business Council was formed in March 2005, with the primary focus of promoting ‘two-way’ trade and investment between New Zealand and Pacific Island countries.
