Join us for our first Export Breakfast for 2021, brought to you by The Chamber and ExportNZ. This is your opportunity to gain critical insights into international and domestic trends that will shape the local operating environment for the year ahead.
Hear first-hand from ExportNZ Executive Director Catherine Beard and Westpac’s Senior Agri-Economist Nathan Penny on the key economic levers and policy developments to help shape your planning, manage risk and capitalise on market opportunities.
Catherine Beard will discuss global events such as Brexit and the updated China FTA agreement and quota proportions, as well as air freight subsidy, supply chain congestion, freight disruptions, border opening and management, manufacturing trends and how these might impact local exporters. She will also outline the key areas of focus for The Chamber and ExportNZ advocacy and progress and developments in this area. This is a key opportunity for you to raise any issues or challenges to be advocated for on your behalf by ExportNZ to central Government officials.
Nathan Penny will provide an economic focus, with an overview of global macroeconomic and trade trends, including the new world order, and how this may impact the local export community. He will also discuss external market factors such as the housing market, interest rates, availability of finance and the New Zealand Dollar.
Our third critical update will come from Ali Adams, NZTE Regional Director, Europe. Ali will join us by zoom from London to give an overview of what’s happening in Europe and the UK. She will provide key insights into future market trends and what countries are shaping up as key prospects for export growth.
Following the speaker presentations, you will have the opportunity to ask questions specific to your business and gain expert knowledge. You will also have the chance to network with other exporters and service providers who support the sector during facilitated table discussions. Feedback from attendees at previous sessions has shown that these conversations are highly valuable and great way to be able to hear what other people are experiencing and their strategies for responding.
Breakfast will be served on arrival.
