ANZ is proud to again partner with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise in celebrating the country’s export successes at the New Zealand International Business Awards.
The awards, which we have supported since 2009, showcase this country’s export success stories, innovation and leadership. As a trading nation, our exporters are the heroes of the New Zealand economy. We have a long tradition of producing quality goods valued in overseas markets, and developing trailblazing ways to get them to customers around the globe.
Over the past decade of ANZ’s involvement in the awards, we have seen a rapid and exciting evolution of the export sector as it finds new opportunities, leveraging technology to pave the way to new markets. Entries to the awards have come from across the country and from an incredibly diverse range of businesses. That reflects the hard work and innovation that is occurring across our export sector. Supporting the awards reflects ANZ’s purpose to help people and communities to thrive.
We know that a strong export sector is crucial to New Zealand’s economic success. We look forward to seeing this year’s awards unfold and to recognising some of the exceptional people and companies who are helping develop our export sector on the world stage.
