The Voice of New Zealand Exporters

ExportNZ is a division of BusinessNZ. The BusinessNZ family has its roots in four large regional organisations of member businesses that together cover the entire country.

EMA, Business Central, Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce (CECC) and Otago-Southland Employers' Association (OSEA) have been serving their member businesses for over a hundred years with legal advice, human resources and other services. This regional presence is the strength behind BusinessNZ's advocacy on behalf of all New Zealand business.

    ExportNZ's key objectives are to:
  • Provide effective advocacy and lobbying on behalf of exporters
  • Inspire New Zealand firms to engage in exporting to expand their business horizons and grow internationally
  • Provide practical support programmes and networking events to help firms achieve these goals.
