COVID-19 Impact Support Fund

Recognising the enormous strain faced by exporters, Pacific Trade Invest New Zealand was able to assist a small number of exporters deal with the challenges of production, equipment and freight under its COVID-19 Impact Support Fund.

Working with other partners and hopefully with more resources available next year we hope to make the Fund available to other exporters next year.
