WHY INVEST IN NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand is famous for its clean, green environment, with magnificent mountains and sparkling waterways. At the same time, New Zealand is a dynamic first-world society with sophisticated cities and a vibrant arts and cultural scene.  

 

The index of economic freedom (complied by the Wall St Journal) ranks New Zealand third out of major OECD nations. This takes into account openness of trade policy, tax rates, monetary policy, wages, unemployment, inflation levels, investment flows and regulation.

The New Zealand Government actively encourages overseas investors to invest in New Zealand, recognizing the important contribution foreign investment makes to the development of New Zealand's industry, resources and community.
