New Zealand has deep and longstanding friendships with the United States and Canada, underpinned by a commitment to promote a free, democratic, secure and prosperous world – and these friendships are reflected in our strong and thriving business partnerships.
Driven by a storied history of quality and creativity, New Zealand is home to free range and innovative companies: shoes made from wool; carbon-composite rockets; wound care from honey; amphibious boats on land and sea; surfboards forged with wool resin; and world-class innovations in software including special effects, 3D games, retail, and broadcasting.
New ideas, new materials, new passions. New Zealand companies are riding a tradition of curiosity and fearlessness to create clever new experiences, brands and partnerships with our partners in North America.
Because together, we can do amazing things.

Sectors of focus
New Zealanders have a special relationship to the land. We’re kaitiaki, or guardians – caring for people, place and planet, today and for future generations. The goodness our land gives back nourishes millions of people around the world – and our connection to the land inspires our thinking and our agritechnology.
New Zealand’s temperate climate, high rainfall, clean waters, fertile soil and low population density offer ideal conditions for premium food and beverage production. When combined with the expertise of our producers, the result is some of the best-tasting dairy, meat, seafood, wine, fruit and vegetables the world has to offer.
Being on the edge of the world has fostered a unique way of looking at challenges – and New Zealanders are known for stretching themselves, going beyond the accepted wisdom, and following good ideas wherever they lead. Those values are reflected in unique and often world-leading technology and innovation.
