University of Waikato Presents: 3rd India - New Zealand Business Forum
In accordance with the MOU between the governments of India and New Zealand and the aspiration to promote trade between the two nations, the first New Zealand India Business Forum was successfully held at Hamilton, New Zealand in November, 2012. The success of the first forum led to the hosting of the second forum in December 2013 in Ahmedabad (Gujarat), India. Both forums were a platform for academics and corporate colleagues from both the countries to come together and understand the nuances of doing businesses within each other's territories. While the two business forums held in Hamilton and Ahmedabad focused largely on channelling New Zealand investments to India and developing a better understanding of Indian markets and business practises, the 3rd forum seeks to facilitate direct trade/business contacts for exploration of mutual and reciprocal opportunities in chosen areas of commerce and economic development.
Date: 4-5 Dec, 2014
Time: 8am - 5 pm
Venue: Waikato Management School, Gate 7, Hillcrest Road, Hamilton, New Zealand.

High hopes for exporting lamb to India: India could become the next fast burner for red meat if not at the same searing pace as China, says the Alliance Group.

"In the next three to five years we could see 10 to 15 per cent of meat cuts go there. That's probably speculative, but we already have a lot of co-products going there." Read More
