aussie, aussie oi!

Welcome to the 2019 edition of the New Zealand Export & Trade Handbook. Once again we’ve reviewed all chapters to ensure that you’re receiving the very latest export information and advice as we count down the final year of the decade. We trust you’ll find the information you’re looking for within the following pages. Every year we devote the first chapter of the Handbook to a specific market, and this year that market is Australia. Our closest neighbour and ally is a great opportunity for Kiwi export firms to ‘cut their teeth on’, and generally offers the easiest step into an overseas market. With Australia’s population now approaching 25 million, it is a significant market – but, as our chapter points out, it’s not one to be taken for granted. There are a number…

encouraging trade; boosting our economic performance

It is a privilege to introduce the 2019 New Zealand Export and Trade Handbook. New Zealand has benefited greatly from international trade. Exporting allows our firms to access larger markets with more consumers, encouraging New Zealand firms to specialise and benefit from economies of scale. It exposes firms to greater competition, encouraging innovation and efficiency. Overseas markets are important sources of capital, new technologies and improved production processes. Trading gets our firms closer to the international productivity frontier firms. On top of all this exporting generates higher-paying jobs. Over 620,000 New Zealanders are employed producing goods and services that are exported. Furthermore, trade provides New Zealanders access to a wide range of imported goods and services, allowing our firms to specialise where they have comparative strengths, rather than having to produce everything…

how to engage in the new age

There’s nothing more certain than uncertainty. Today embracing disruption is the catch cry – and not just embracing disruptive technologies but also the tailwinds of opportunity from a world sent spinning as shapeshifting pacts, blocs and agreements morph, exit and even die. As exporters from a small nation used to learning to live and prosper by making our own way, we have to think fresher, smarter and braver to earn our place in markets, in segments and in the hearts, minds and wallets of individual customers wherever we meet them in real life or over a digital platform. We have our work cut out and cannot rely on legacy products and services. There are no sacred cows. Just look at what is happening to our beef and lamb sector with the rise…

advancing to australia: what you need to know

Australia and New Zealand are inextricably connected. While both countries are fierce rivals on and off the sportsfield, ‘Kiwis’ and ‘Aussies’ share a mutual respect; common bonds and history; travel freely and frequently across each other’s borders; and share similar business values and a love for trading goods and services with each other. Each market is almost an extension of the other – albeit somewhat lopsided with New Zealand’s entire population (4,885 million) a shade less than the state of Queensland (4.99 million). Australia’s fast-growing population (24.899 million) is a magnet for New Zealand firms looking to scale up beyond the domestic market, but not prepared to jump into more distant, and complicated, jurisdictions such as Southeast Asia. However, once New Zealand companies succeed in Australia, they often look further afield to…

According to Statistics New Zealand, this country’s exports of goods and services for the year ended June 2017 were valued at $71.8 billion – that’s up almost a billion dollars on the previous year – while total imports added up to $68.7 billion. The top export destination was China ($13.2 billion), followed by Australia ($13.0 billion). The European Union ($11.9 billion) and Australia ($11.4 billion) were our main import sources. Dairy products and logs to China were New Zealand's top two export commodities by destination in the June 2017 year, earning $3.3 billion and $2.1 billion, respectively. Vehicles, parts, and accessories from Japan ($2.3 billion) and the European Union ($2.2 billion); and electrical machinery and equipment from China ($2.0 billion), were our three largest import expenses. New Zealand is recognised internationally as a country that…

the 5 c’s of exporting

Clarity of Purpose – You need a clear vision for your product and how it will compete in an overseas market. Understand the issues of access and have a plan in place that allows you to measure and manage to ensure success. Capability – Capability is about your people (including agents), governance structures, technical ability and processes that perform in a market and keep performing. Connections – It will not be ‘what you know’ in most markets; it will be ‘who you know’. Develop good networks which will give you access to good market knowledge and distribution systems. Build a team around you of positive mentors. Cash – You will need this to visit, research, test markets, meet people, create a local network and go back and do it all again if you…
