Webinar – Our import relationship with China

June 26, 2024

In the wake of COVID, increased geopolitical tensions and the US-China trade conflict, “supply chain” is suddenly a word we now hear all the time – whether professionally or around the dinner table, disrupted international supply, increased costs and diversification of import sources are all under the microscope more than they used to be.

China is our largest source of imports, manufactured for New Zealand companies or arriving under increasingly well-known Chinese brands, in both our work and personal lives. Does this leave us exposed – are there particular products from China we can’t do without, and what would happen if supply was interrupted? Should New Zealand be looking at diversification strategies? And what are the exciting new opportunities that Chinese imports offer to our economy?

On 26 June, the New Zealand China Council | Te Kaunihera o Aotearoa me Haina and the North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence will co-host an online event to launch our latest research report Sourcing from the World’s Factory: Our import relationship with China.

The report will assess the scale and profile of New Zealand’s imports from China, concentration risks (or not), China’s strong and weak points as a supplier including in emerging areas like green tech, and potential future supply change challenges and how we should respond.

During the webinar, report author Sense Partners will present the key findings, followed by a panel discussion by industry experts on what importing from the world’s factory means for New Zealand in 2024 and beyond.

We hear so much about China as New Zealand’s largest export market. Join us to also hear the reverse side of our critical bilateral trade relationship.
