Dev Nadkarni - Media & Stakeholder Relationships Advisor


It’s that time of year again when we share the joys of the festive season with our loved ones and friends. <!--more-->It is also the time of year when we pause to reflect on the months gone by and to look forward with a sense of anticipation to what the New Year brings.

It has been a fulfilling year for us at PT&amp;I New Zealand, with our trade and investment teams notching up a number of successes for our many clients across projects and programmes. We have showcased our activities and outcomes all year round in our weekly <i>Pacific Periscope</i> newsletter, the quarterly <i>Trade Winds</i> e-publication and through mainstream media releases regionally.

Our social media campaigns have gone from strength to strength deepening our engagement with our audiences, many of whom are our stakeholders, and we thank you dear readers for your wholehearted participation and feedback both to our <i>Pacific Periscope</i> newsletter and our social media posts.

Today’s media platforms instantly put us in touch with one another and we greatly appreciate your continued feedback, ideas, news tips and contributions to make our communications more useful for our clients and stakeholders alike. In the New Year, we have plans to step up our efforts to connect better and more meaningfully with our stakeholders, building on the success of our communications initiatives.

As well as a plethora of activities around our region, the year gone by has also seen greater engagement of our New Zealand offices with Asia, with a view to opening up opportunities for our Pacific Island exporters in the world’s fastest growing region. Our team was at the UN-ESCAP Asia Pacific Business Forum in Colombo, Sri Lanka, representing the Pacific Islands private sector, exploring possibilities to expand its export market footprint. We look forward to exciting new developments in this regard in the New Year.

Have a pleasant, enjoyable and safe holiday season with family and friends and wish you a Happy New Year filled with good health, much wealth and cheer!

Best wishes,
