The second wave has hit the shore in Asia – is this a high tide or hidden tsunami?

With major Asian economies the first to restart after the C19 crisis, where should New Zealand exporters be looking?

In EIGHT | VOICE FROM THE MARKET | ASIA, we are looking to position and optimise New Zealand exporters for recovery during and post C19, by discussing the reality on the ground with channel partners and businesses active inside these markets:

  • Insights on the region’s countries, industries, and sectors – what and where is doing better?
  • How quickly is the economy recovering in China? if it wasn’t already, should the Chinese market be a priority for exporters?
  • What is actually happening in Singapore,  Korea and Japan? All have very different stories emerging on the restart of their economies.
  • What is  the feeling on the ground about Government measures of containment, and how are each dealing with the  second wave of infections?
  • Are the optimists or pessimists winning the day?

Friday’s Panel will again be facilitated by Andy Mitchell, growth strategist at Katabolt, discussing real and practical ways of helping New Zealand businesses and exporters make it through with advice and insights from Industry Experts:

Hamish Conway

Sell Global, Director

Damon Paling

NZTE, Beachheads Advisor (ex-Trade Commissioner, Shanghai)

Rachel Maidment

New Zealand China Council, Executive Director

Paul Gestro

ASB Bank, International Trade Consultant

Jason Reeves

Japan New Zealand Business Council, Vice Chair

Are you currently exporting to countries in Asia, or considering it? You need to be part of this week’s Webinar.

This is the time to look at our businesses through a wider lens, in order to focus on where the opportunities will lie. All participants are welcome, and there is no cost to register – click below for the link to our webinar platform.

Don’t forget about the ERP AFTERPARTY – consider this your invite…

The ERP afterparty is a 30 minute session directly after the webinar to provide guidance from two of the industry’s leading figures – Christopher Boys from Katabolt and Hamish Conway from SellGlobal  – available to answer specific questions from you on the region around access to markets, export partners and channels, or potential opportunities.

In the webinar registration link there is a field to enter these questions in (or message Hamish during the webinar) – then stay on the call after the Webinar finishes, and hopefully we will get to yours in order to help out.

Created by Katabolt, New Zealand’s leading export consultancy, the THRIVE TO SURVIVE project has been designed by exporters, for exporters in response to the C19 crisis. The EXPORT RECOVERY PANEL WEBINAR SERIES is at the core of this project, providing clarity, certainty and guidance where we can to help get a footing on shaky ground.
