23.05.2016

Business leaders from Agritech industry to gather at the upcoming INZBC Summit 2016

Over 300 global business leaders and stakeholders will come together on 13th June for first of its kind summit on Agritech, being held by INZBC. The summit will witness business leadership from across New Zealand and India to discuss in depth the scope of agribusiness in both the countries.

The Summit is being held in partnership with New Zealand National Fieldays, the most respected organisation in NZ for Agriculture.

“INZBC has always endeavored to bring together a range of organisations, think-tanks, academicians under one roof through our flagship event – INZBC Summit. This year, for our third annual summit, the Agritech theme is very relevant and timely given the importance of the agriculture sector for both the countries”, said Wenceslaus Anthony, Head of Govt. Relations, India New Zealand Business Council.

The Summit has an interesting line-up of speakers from both New Zealand and India including representatives from National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), Kwality Dairy India Ltd., Agriculture Skill Council of India, Binsar Farms, Qualitat Products (India), Pipfruit, Waikato Innovation Park, Fieldays, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, ATEED, Callaghan Innovation, to name a few.

“It our pleasure in announcing that INZBC have signed an MOU with The NZ National Fieldays Society™ which is also a milestone for our organization. In the spirit of the MOU, we are organising this Agri-Tech focused Summit, just 2 days before the Fieldays event. The interest in Fieldays is immense, not only locally but from around the world, and the visiting delegates from India will surely carry back some useful insights by what they see and learn along with the memories of the hospitality they receive in New Zealand” Anthony said further.

Opening new doors for businesses, the summit will touch upon areas like major trends and future market opportunities in the sector, technology advancements, animal husbandry for increased productivity, scope of growth in dairy farming, etc.

For past few years, India New Zealand Business Council has been very successful in bringing together networks of business and organizations including key companies and policymakers who are interested in developing trade between India and New Zealand. Focus of the summit this year is Agritech which is particularly relevant to both countries and is an area with great potential for collaborations. Attending this summit will not only equip attendees with knowledge on opportunities in agritech sector, but also help to get connected with excellent speakers and business community in the sphere.

According to the recent figures, Agriculture is the backbone of New Zealand economy, with over 95 percent of agricultural production exported. As one of the world’s most efficient agricultural economies, with respected pastoral farming expertise and high quality food production systems, New Zealand is well-positioned to work with other countries like India who have got billions to feed.

As India looks to increase its agricultural output, there is great need—and a growing market—for sophisticated mechanized tools and equipment. There is a significant opportunity for kiwi businesses to get access to networks of business from India.

The event is open to the public and will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Langham Auckland.
