NZCTA enters into partnership with Export New Zealand

China General Interest

Media release 7 April 2010 Export New Zealand welcomes new Asian partners Export New Zealand (a division of Business NZ) 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 Export New Zealand, 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 Export New Zealand 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.” For further information: Catherine Beard (ENZ) cbeard@exportnewzealand.org.nz 0274 633212, Stephanie Moakes (BNZ) smoakes@businessnz.org.nz 021 959 831 Stuart Ferguson (NZCTA) stuart.ferguson@nzcta.co.nz 021965 896 Stuart Walbridge (ANZCBC) stuart.walbridge@riskmatize.com 021 663 284 www.exportnz.org.nz www.asean.org.nz www.nzcta.co.nz
