Asia Markets

The world has embraced the wealth of trade and investment opportunities available throughout Asia. The region now features three of the world's top ten economies, with China, Japan and India ranked second, third and sixth respectively. Fuelled by high population, natural resources and global manufacturing demand (among other contributors), Asia has experienced unprecedented growth for decades.


With the New Zealand-China Free Trade Agreement (which over time will eliminate tariffs on 96% of the country's exports to China), New Zealand is well placed to extend market ties and business opportunities to the region. Statistics New Zealand figures reveal trade with China has exceeded forecast expectations, jostling in recent years with Australia as the country's primary export destination. Driven by a growing middle-income wealth and high demand for quality food products (i.e. fruit, meat, seafood, dairy, etc), China remains a key export market for construction materials and products such as timber.


Contrary to the aging populace of Western countries, India has a young and growing population that has a greater number of people entering the workforce than those retiring. The nation is now the sixth-largest economy in the world, and recently topped the World Bank's economic growth outlook. Gaps in the Indian market commodities such as lumber, wine, education, biotech and frozen foodstuffs offer considerable export opportunities for New Zealand businesses looking to expand.
