NZTE's strategy supports the Government's Business Growth Agenda which creates conditions that encourage successful businesses to grow globally.
NZTE's customers are New Zealand's internationalising businesses. We work with approximately 1500 - 2000 businesses at any one time and focus intensively on an active portfolio of 500 that have the scale and ambition to succeed internationally.
Our programmes and services are designed to support businesses to grow and succeed internationally and are focused primarily on refining strategy, improving performance, building global networks, and in-market support for business development.
We align our service with different stages of a business lifecycle - from starting and growing a business, through to exporting and operating internationally - and help address the scale and distance issues faced by New Zealand exporters.
NZTE has 10 offices in New Zealand and staff in 36 locations around the world. We work in partnership with New Zealand businesses, helping to build strategic alliances and develop commercial relationships. We connect them with opportunities and contacts in international markets, and share our knowledge, experience and networks to help businesses develop capability and scale.
