Why do business in China?

• One of the world’s top five trading nations – the 10th to achieve an economy with an annual value of US$1 trillion.
• Population of 1.3 billion, with an educated, fast growing workforce including a new generation of young consumers familiar with Western culture.
• NZ is currently the first country to develop a free trade agreement with China.
• Rotorua has unique opportunities to leverage existing relationships with China.

When to do business in China?

Now is the best time, when we have the opportunity to leverage off the Nanjing Rotorua Town Project. Opportunities don’t get much better than this.

Where to do business in China?

A new generation of consumers is located China’s eastern seaboard, in areas such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Jiangsu and Guangzhou.

The Rotorua District Council Mayoral Delegation in November 2006 will visit Shanghai, Nanjing (capital of Jiangsu Province) and Beijing, as well as Rotorua’s sister city Suzhou.

How we can help?

Rotorua District Council has developed and fostered relationships with China over the past few years. The most recent and successful of these is the Nanjing Rotorua Town project.

The project, based on a relationship with the Nanjing Mingyure Construction Group and the Nanjing Jianjing Government, is developing a 2000-lot residential subdivision with a Rotorua theme.

These relationships and this development have paved the way for companies to do business in China. All businesses in Rotorua and the wider Bay of Plenty region have the opportunity to join the Mayoral Delegation in November.
