ABOUT THE TRADE AWARDS
The NZCTA Trade Awards were established in 2004 by the New Zealand China Trade Association to recognise companies that have launched successful business relationships between New Zealand and China, or those that have created a successful investment with China.
Successful international trade plays a crucial part in assuring New Zealand’s presence on the world stage. The awards aim to give recognition to companies that have excelled or taken a bold new step in trading with China, allowing them to grow or to continue to grow from a base of excellence.
They attract those who are consulting within China, whether it is in education, town planning or engineering; those who have established either export or import trade links with China, and those that have established a manufacturing or trade base in China.
Even though there are many New Zealand businesses that have successfully established trade links with China, it doesn’t come without its challenges. It is supremely important for us to recognize the success of NZ-China traders – they are role models for all aspiring importers and exporters to China.
