Finding new markets for our exports is a key strategy for growing our businesses in the Top of the South. Diversifying away from single large markets will make our businesses more resilient.
Infometrics, together with international trade experts, has developed an approach to help businesses, industries, and economic development agencies identify markets around the world which offer the greatest potential for growth. The product, Export Market Finder, takes decision making away from gut feel and anecdote to rigorous, evidence-based analysis.
In his presentation Infometrics Chief Forecaster, Gareth Kiernan, will identify some of the prospects for growing Te Tauihu’s exports into new markets. He will contextualise the findings with his views on the importance of diversification of markets and trends in exports from our region.
The event will also be available via Zoom. To register for the Zoom webinar, please click on the following link.
