New Zealand

Why New Zealand?

New Zealand is a geopolitically safe and economically strong nation in the South Pacific with abundant natural resources.

The Land of the Long White Cloud is a safe place to invest and do business. In the World Bank's latest Doing Business report, New Zealand is ranked first in the world for protecting investors. Anti-corruption NGO Transparency International also ranks New Zealand first in the world for the honesty and integrity of its public sector.

New Zealand is the easiest country in the world in which to start a new business. The World Bank's 2016 Doing Business report found that starting a new business involves one procedure and takes half a day. New Zealand ranks second out of 189 countries in the overall ease of doing business, according to the report.

New Zealand's geographic proximity and the extensive free trade agreements (FTAs) it has signed with China, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines, make it an ideal base from which to export. The country's top exports are dairy products, meat, wine and tourism.
