    The Exporter - May 2020

    21 May 2020 | BusinessNZ

    I do hope all our exporter readers are faring better now that we are out of such a restricted trading environment. Food and beverage exporters have done better since they were able to trade through that time as “essential services”, but it has definitely been very tough for our non-food manufacturers.

    According to Stats from the MFAT reports below, in April exports to all countries were down 2.6 percent to $5.3 billion. Dairy and meat exports were up 25.8 percent and 0.8 percent respectively, while seafood and forestry exports fell 30.9 percent and 68.7 percent respectively. We are hearing good reports of optimism and resilience from our regional offices as to how their exporter members are feeling, with lots of agility and innovative thinking going on. Stay positive, the NZ economy needs you to do well like never before!

We are currently touring through all our 8 regional ExportNZ offices, talking to exporters about their challenges and opportunities and taking along Government Officials that can hopefully help. It has been good to catch up with a lot of exporters and hear about your issues, which we will continue to advocate on once the road show is over.

    The Exporter - December 2019

    17 Dec 2019 | BusinessNZ

    Where did 2019 go? It was an action packed year on the trade front, with plenty of international drama that so far has mainly resulted in upside for NZ exporters (unless you were in steel or aluminium). That said, uncertainty is not a business persons friend and there is plenty of that still around, including with BREXIT. It is great to see the Export Credit Office has supported so many export sales, check them out below to see if they could help you.
