Alliance will benefit NZ exporters

28 May 2008

Alliance will benefit NZ exporters

A strategic alliance between Business NZ and Export NZ will strengthen services to exporters.

Business NZ chief executive Phil O'Reilly and Export NZ chief executive Bob Walters today announced plans for a restructuring of the services offered to exporters by both organisations.

From 1 July an export division of Business NZ will provide national and international representation for exporters, along with increased advocacy and advice services.

Export Awards and other events and services will be operated from the export divisions of Business NZ regional associations EMA Northern, EMA Central, Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce and the Otago Southland Employers' Association.

Mr Walters said the move will allow Export NZ members to gain the benefit of scale of Business NZ representation and resources, as well as increased regional coverage. Export sponsorships will continue as before, and the Export NZ brand will continue, with stronger presence in the market.

Mr O'Reilly said exporters will benefit from greater regional, national and international representation, increased advocacy services and a strong focus on export needs.
