Launched in June 2007, NZIBF brings together business leaders from some of New Zealand’s largest internationally oriented companies together with the country’s peak business organisations.
Collectively, these business leaders from the dairy, meat, seafood, kiwifruit, software and services industries represent companies and sectors with a combined turnover in excess of $30 billion. The business organisations represent New Zealand’s export, manufacturing and services sectors.
NZIBF is the only forum where these multi-sector leaders gather to discuss strategic trade and investment issues. The Board meets four times a year and directs NZIBF’s work programme according to a 3-year strategic plan and an annual business plan. NZIBF’s work programme is supported by a range of associate members who receive regular updates, are engaged directly in NZIBF activities and meet at least twice a year with the Board.
The NZ Chamber’s are members of the NZIBF.
