Interviews with NZ companies in Australia

In 2013, seven New Zealand companies from multiple industries, including manufacturing, professional services, fashion, tourism, media and skincare shared their experiences of exporting to Australia.

The big lesson to come out of conversations with NZ leaders is that despite the geographic closeness and shared DNA of the Kiwi and Aussies cultures, when it comes to business we are pretty different. Understanding those differences is what gives New Zealand exporters an advantage in Australia. Coming in unprepared can destroy chances, even for those brands already successful in New Zealand.
