Get the support you need to make your business a global success story.
Kiwi businesses are renowned for bringing innovative products and services to the world stage. Of course, the journey to international fame and fortune is rarely easy.
The New Zealand economy is highly internationalised and global trade accounts for over two-thirds of our total economic activity. The majority of our economy is generated by exports and approximately half our income is generated by selling in overseas markets. International business is therefore crucial for boosting the New Zealand economy. The government has a set goal for increasing exports from a current 30% as part of GDP to 40% by 2025.
Entering into international trade can be an exciting journey. However, there is no denying the mix of complexities and frustrations that go hand in hand with the anticipation and thrill of success.
