ExportNZ says New Zealand’s educational institutions offer a valuable export commodity with great potential for growth. The news that there is to be a dedicated Government agency focussed on maximising its potential is a welcome economic growth initiative.

ExportNZ executive director Catherine Beard says a sector based approach through increased collaboration seems sensible.

“As a small country, collaboration is key to leveraging our position and boosting our presence in a highly competitive global marketplace. We’re seeing the need for this approach across many sectors where small Kiwi companies are otherwise falling under the radar.

“We look forward to working with new Crown Agency.”
