Central Otago Export Forum












The next Forum will take place on Thursday 2 March – please download details here. Internationalisation is a big challenge particularly for small to medium businesses.  There are some great speakers lined up on this topic so it should be a fascinating session.

New Zealand Business Mission to Thailand and Vietnam 2017

ExportNZ, in partnership with the ASEAN NZ Business Council, is planning a business mission to Thailand and Vietnam (provisional dates: 5 – 14 August, 2017).

This is an opportunity to participate in a coordinated visit with a structured programme of business briefings, plant visits, networking events and one-on-one meetings – all with a view to helping you achieve specific outcomes for your business.

The leader of the business mission is Sir Kenneth Stevens KNZM, Executive Chairman, Glidepath Group and National Chair, ExportNZ.


*   Dedicated business-to-business matching arranged in advance of departure through New Zealand Trade and Enterprise in Thailand and Viet Nam.
*   Valuable insights, in a quick and effective way, into the opportunities of an export market. Being in the market and experiencing it first hand is essential and cannot be substituted with desk-based research or third hand reports.
*   Utilising the support of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, ExportNZ and the ASEAN NZ Business Council, gives you a credible presence within the market.
*   Opportunities to meet a significant number of decision-makers and key influencers from Government and senior business leadership.   Connect with customers who you would not be able to reach in a private capacity.
*   Being part of a team. Delegates from previous business missions have commented on the collective power, energy and strength of the group.   Other members of the team bring you opportunities that may otherwise be missed.

ExportNZ and ASEAN NZ Business Council have established a track record for delivering successful outcomes for New Zealand businesses. Expressions of interest are now being taken.
