Joyce’s visit served to follow up on Teknatool’s previous experiences with the Callaghan Fund as well as Better by Design, and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, all of which focus on furthering New Zealand’s businesses to export globally. Teknatool seized the opportunity to demonstrate latest developments and Research and Development (R&D) progress.
