Private Business Insights – Special Edition 2015

After five years of negotiation, the TPP deal has been sealed. The overall benefit of the TPP to New Zealand is estimated by the Government to be at least $2.7 billion a year by 2030. Does this mean good news for your business? In short, it could.

In 2014, 40 per cent of goods exports and 47 per cent of services exports from New Zealand went to the TPP destinations: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam.

The TPP brings with it significant tariff reductions – a major trade benefit for New Zealand – so you might be tempted to think about whether your business is ready to enter a new market.

Exporting can be a great option for tapping into some of these bigger markets. But exporters beware: global expansion plans can be a drain on cash and getting it wrong can be expensive, time consuming and ultimately put the success of your offshore expansion at risk.
