NZITA launches its South Island chapter
The New Zealand India Trade Alliance (NZITA) has launched a South Island chapter to create a
gateway for companies in the South to connect with the huge opportunities emerging in the
Indian market. The event called Unlocking the Potential of India, was held in Christchurch and was attended by over 60 representatives from companies looking to expand business opportunities in the Indian market. The local chapter will be led by Michael Henstock.
National MP and opposition spokesperson for Finance, Amy Adams, who attended the event said, “From New Zealand’s perspective it is incredibly important that we continue to grow diversity of markets. When you look at India, the size of its growth, and the strong cultural and sporting ties that we have there, an increasing footprint in that market will be incredibly beneficial for New Zealand.”
NZITA co-deputy chair Don Brash added, “Despite challenges, India has taken huge strides in recent years in improving its macro-economic stability.”
Also present at the occasion were representatives from the iconic Kiwi company, Hamilton Jet, which recently completed a deal to provide water jets for a fleet of 14 new Follow On - Fast Attack Craft for the Indian Navy.
