For many SMEs the market entry and market development in foreign countries is a considerable undertaking. Furthermore, market, country and language knowledge is often limited, as well as personnel and financial resources. To overcome these barriers, a local business representation could be a convenient solution.

The business representation service offers a contact point for potential customers and business partners in New Zealand. Participating companies will receive a postal and physical address with their own telephone number within the premises of the GNZCC. You will be looked after by a bilingual staff member who is familiar with the New Zealand market and NZ's way of thinking.

The service allows German SMEs to build up closer relations with customers and to improve sales opportunities, despite the up to 12 hour time difference. We will act as a bridge between your export department and the New Zealand customers and business partners. We are here to represent your interests in New Zealand.
