Investing in New Zealand 2022

New Zealand is an open and competitive economy with a population of around 5 million.

The country has a range of strong manufacturing and service sectors which complement a trade-oriented economy, with the agricultural, horticultural, forestry, mining, and fishing sectors all playing an important role in the export sector and employment.

Foreign investment is welcomed, and all levels of government are keen to promote business, economic development, and employment growth.

Amid global uncertainty and downstream issues, New Zealand’s business environment is sound with a reasonably predictable policy environment, clear property rights, and high levels of trust and transparency provide a positive basis for sustained growth.

Our latest Investing in New Zealand Guide is a helpful summary of New Zealand’s business framework, and:
