Mā mātou koe e āwhina. We're here to help.

When you have big business ambitions in a small country, exporting can be a natural next step.

But that doesn’t mean it comes naturally. Growing your business overseas can be tough, and getting the right support at the right time can make all the difference.

NZTE is here to help. We can draw on our global network of expertise and contacts to help exporters make better decisions and connections, wherever you are in the world.

It’s what we do every day, and we’d love to get started with you.
