Why New Zealand?
New Zealand is a nation of creative idea-makers, delivering new solutions and great partnerships.
Our Government embraces high-quality local and international investment to grow and support a productive, sustainable and inclusive economy, now and into the future. We call this kaitiakitanga, or care for people and place.
New Zealand is ranked first in the world for ease of doing business. We're a stable and safe location for investing with confidence.
We have a simple, low-rate broad-base tax regime, streamlined and evidence-based regulations, and strong investor protections.
Located on the Pacific Rim and close to Asian markets, we're linked to our neighbours through an expansive network of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and other international partnerships. Around 70 percent of New Zealand's exports are to countries in the Asia-Pacific, with many of these goods and services enjoying preferential trade access.
New Zealand's innovative businesses are born global, with strengths in value-added food and beverage, wood processing, advanced transportation, technology, tourism and more. These sectors produce top-quality products and services for world markets, and underpin an enviable environment and lifestyle.
Our banking and finance system encourages new and strategic capital to internationalise enterprises, promote innovation, and support the creation of intellectual property.
While New Zealand might be small, the opportunities are endless.
