What are the Opportunities?

New Zealand’s small market size has many opportunities to offer UK companies. Its size in particular makes the market a sound choice for UK SME companies new to exporting.

The value of the UK’s reputation in making high-quality goods should not be forgotten in this market where high quality can compete with lower priced goods sourced from other countries.

New Zealand imports a wide range of British goods and services, particularly in the following sectors:

  • Agriculture

  • Biotechnology

  • Clothing

  • Creative Industries

  • Education

  • Food and Drink

  • Giftware

  • Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals

  • ICT

  • Marine

  • Publishing

  • Textiles
