ExportNZ welcomes new Asian partners

ExportNZ, a division of BusinessNZ, is optimising the growing opportunities in the Asian market today by entering partnerships with the New Zealand China Trade Association (NZCTA) and ASEAN New Zealand Combined Business Council (ANZCBC).

Catherine Beard, Executive Director of ExportNZ, says the new agreements will create a strong alliance focusing on maximising the benefits of freer trading environments in Asia.

“Working in close co-operation with these two well respected business councils will add huge value to the services we can offer our members. In effect, NZCTA and ANZCBC will be our specialist units serving the crucial China and ASEAN markets.”

Whilst, the three organisations will work together offering services and activities to their members, they will retain their individual autonomy and operate independently.

NZCTA Chairman, Stuart Ferguson said “NZCTA has long held strategic objectives both to increase its support of the export effort to China and to expand our reach geographically in New Zealand and China.

“Our association with ExportNZ will enable us to work with its branches throughout New Zealand to organise events and other trade promotional activities, particularly in centres with a strong export presence.”

ANZCBC Chairman, Stuart Walbridge added “We’re delighted to be able to work with a strong national group without losing our focus on the increasingly important ASEAN region.”
