We aim to promote business opportunities and strengthen trade and economic ties between New Zealand and Japan for the benefit of our members, as well as the broader business community.
For New Zealand companies doing business with Japan or looking to enter the market, successful recruitment (and retention) of highly motivated staff with experience of working in Japan and an understanding of the language and culture will be an important determinant between success and failure.
The theme of the evening was RWC 2019 – leveraging opportunities, where speakers from NZ INC – NZTE/TNZ/MFAT shared their calendar of activities to be conducted throughout RWC 2019 and explained how Kiwi business can tap into this unique opportunity.
