Business NZ calls for export growth

Business NZ issued a press release today regarding a need to boost exports from NZ.

Business NZ chief executive Phil O’Reilly’s quote rings true – he says

New Zealand’s economy is too small to generate rapid growth without strong export performance.

Our challenge is to grow exports as a proportion of GDP. It’s the only way to grow the economy and improve living standards.

Our population makes up a tiny proportion of worldwide consumers and clients, so exporting is key to creating a viable long term growth plan for businesses.

We have a number of overseas clients, many of which have been as a result of collaboration with our Prague office. Working with these businesses gives one a strong sense that those not exporting are only getting the benefit of the tip of the iceberg.
