Exporting Across the Ditch with the Australian High Commission

Date: Thursday 5 Sep 2019     Time: 4:30pm to 6:30pm

Venue: Australian High Commission, 72-76 Hobson St, Thorndon, Wellington 6011

Ready to export across the ditch or think you might in the near future? Already doing business in Australia and want to meet other Wellington exporters in market? Here’s a great opportunity to learn from the best and network with your fellow exporters, brought to you by the Wellington Chamber of Commerce, ExportNZ, and the Australian High Commission.

Australia is our closest neighbour and #2 trading partner with two-way trade reaching NZ$26.94 billion in the year ending March 2019. Our relationship with Australia stretches from shared values, history, institutions, and a healthy sporting rivalry, to working together in every area of international governance from international trade policy, foreign aid, and defence.

But how does this close relationship help Kiwi businesses export and invest in Australia? What are the opportunities across the Tasman for our exporters to seize? And what are the experiences of our exporters already in market?

With a great line-up of speakers who will share their export stories in Australia and a Q&A session with the panel at the end, this is a great opportunity for you to get some first-hand tips on one of our closest export markets.

Venue and refreshments provided by the Australian High Commission.
