“Colombia: New Zealand’s Newest Partner in Latin America”
The visits to Colombia this year from Prime Minister John Key, Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy and Trade Minister Tim Groser have opened up opportunities for growth in business and trade that can be realised by playing to both countries’ strengths and opportunities.
Colombia is thriving economically, and there are increased opportunities there for New Zealand businesses to invest in the local economy, export their goods and services, and partner with Colombians to supply third market country markets. In particular, New Zealand’s strengths in agriculture and education can help Colombia unleash the potential of its productive sector.
This event is essential for those interested in exploring business opportunities in Colombia.
