NZIBF believes engagement with the rest of the world is critical to New Zealand's economic future. Trade, inward and outward investment and strategic alliances all help to increase productivity and living standards. Business has a role to play alongside Government to set priorities for growing international business.
NZIBF has identified enhancing New Zealand's business and economic relationship with Japan as its top priority.
Japan is the immediate focus because as New Zealand's fourth largest trading partner this relationship needs to be nurtured and developed. Japan's large economy and its importance as a market and an investment partner also highlight the need to reinvigorate ties with New Zealand.
Other NZIBF projects include Korea and India, a watching brief on Russia and the European Union and support for existing strategies with Australia, the United States and China.
