Diversify or Double Down – the Post-CoVid recovery conundrum for New Zealand Exporters
As the New Zealand economy finds it way through the early days of post-covid recovery many exporters are re-evaluating their export market mix and re-considering where to place their time and energy. New Zealand Trade & Enterprise is New Zealand’s trade promotion agency and is currently working with exporters in New Zealand and across the globe to assist in re-energising international trade and economic recovery for these companies and the country.
