Global Perspective Will Help NZ Agribusiness Grow

GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE WILL HELP NEW ZEALAND AGRIBUSINESS GROW

For Immediate Release January 2014

An agribusiness symposium with a global focus will help New Zealand businesses continue to develop their production, marketing and logistics skills to grow sales and exports.

That’s the view of agribusiness consultancy, AbacusBio that is underwriting the second Queenstown Agribusiness Symposium in March 2015.

AbacusBio partner, Anna Campbell says after attending the Harvard Agribusiness Executive Seminar in China a few years ago, the company was inspired to organise a comparable event locally so more New Zealand businesses could benefit from the learnings and networking.

The three--day program is facilitated by the Director of Harvard Business School’s Agribusiness Program, Mary Shelman and Professor of Marketing and Associate Dean at UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, Ireland, Prof. Damien P. McLoughlin, who bring an international perspective, she says.

Anna Campbell says global and local business case studies that are relevant to New Zealand are the basis for active learning and cover all parts of the supply chain including new market entry issues with a focus on how to build growth in the Asia Pacific.

She says it’s a great time for agribusiness with demand outpacing supply in much of the world.

She believes New Zealand’s location close to the Asia Pacific market means with scale, differentiation and alignment companies can maximise export growth.
