Bank of China (NZ) to Hold Agribusiness Investment and Trade Conference
Bank of China (NZ) Limited will hold an inaugural China-New Zealand Agribusiness Investment and Trade Conference on 25 May at the Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland.
The conference, supported by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) and Chinese Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand (CCCNZ), will open with a keynote speech from Bank of China’s deputy chief executive, followed by face-to-face break-out match meetings for New Zealand companies wanting to establish contacts, find distribution partners and/or discuss market entry requirements in China.
“We see part of Bank of China (NZ)’s role is to act as a bridge and connect local companies to the right kind of Chinese business partners, whether from a distribution, strategic investment, production or marketing perspective,” said David Lei Wang, Chief Executive Officer Bank of China (NZ).
“China presents great opportunities for New Zealand agribusiness to produce and export more, but companies here need the right partner to support them in making that first step. By hosting 70 Chinese agricultural companies here, we aim to introduce local agribusinesses to people who can potentially help them access the Chinese market and grow their business.”
“New Zealand primary industry and agricultural companies will have a unique opportunity to better understand access to China’s burgeoning 1.3 billion middle-income consumer market, including potential to establish trading partnerships with 70 visiting Chinese agribusiness representatives.”
Wang acknowledges that trading with China, with its different social and business culture and legal system presents Kiwi companies with significant challenges but these can be surmounted by forming relationships with key Chinese conduits.
