Investment in exports well-placed

More focus on key markets will benefit New Zealand’s export prospects, says BusinessNZ.

BusinessNZ Chief Executive Phil O’Reilly says additional funding announced today for NZTE’s work in China, South America and the Middle East will help more New Zealand companies export there.

“Companies say breaking into overseas markets is one of the hardest things to do, especially distant markets with different languages and cultures.

“NZTE’s assistance to new and existing exporters is highly valued, and it is great news that this will be extended in key markets.”

Mr O’Reilly said more funding to extend NZTE intensive support, from the current 500 export companies to 700, and to invest more in specific sectoral programmes, was also welcome.

“Our ability to earn our living through international trade is critical to our success as a nation.

“This additional investment on our behalf by the Government is well placed.”
