Pacific Trade Invest New Zealand (PTI NZ) is part of the PTI Global Network of offices in Australia, China, Europe, and Aotearoa New Zealand as the Pacific region’s lead trade and investment promotion agency. The global network supports and delivers to the Pacific Island Forum Secretariat’s Strategic Outcome C – Increasing Economic Prosperity.
PTI NZ is tasked by the Pacific Islands Forum to focus on creating commercial opportunities for export capable and export ready enterprises across the Blue Pacific by facilitating trade and investment between the economies of the Pacific Island Countries and Territories and Aotearoa New Zealand.
Specifically, we promote their products and services in the New Zealand market and facilitate investments from New Zealand to the Blue Pacific economies.
Being aligned to the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat gives Pacific Trade Invest New Zealand and the global network a comparative advantage in having direct access to regional policies and frameworks; to technical agencies; and to Government officials in capitals through the Secretariat’s meeting platforms and dialogues.
