Pacific Trade Invest New Zealand (PTI NZ) functions as a crucial element within the PTI Global Network, spanning across Australia, China, Europe, and Aotearoa New Zealand. It plays a pivotal role as the primary agency driving trade and investment promotion in the Pacific region. The wider global network collectively works towards advancing the goals set forth in the Pacific Island Forum Secretariat’s Strategic Outcome C, which focuses on enhancing economic prosperity.

Under the mandate of the Pacific Islands Forum, PTI NZ is fundamentally dedicated to stimulating commercial opportunities for export-oriented enterprises throughout the Blue Pacific region. It achieves this objective by facilitating the establishment of trade and investment connections between the diverse Pacific Island Countries and Territories and Aotearoa New Zealand.

In a more specific context, PTI NZ concentrates on advocating the products and services of these entities within the New Zealand market while also aiding in the inflow of investments from New Zealand into the burgeoning economies of the Blue Pacific.

The strategic alignment with the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat affords Pacific Trade Invest New Zealand and its global network a distinct edge by granting them direct access to regional policies, frameworks, technical agencies, and government representatives. This access is facilitated through the Secretariat’s meeting platforms and dialogues.

What sets us apart is our inclusive approach, as we extend our support to all 16 member states of the Forum Island Countries and Territories, which encompass the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.
