New Zealand offers one of the most business-friendly environments in the world for foreign investors and multinationals.

New Zealand's increasingly diverse economy and skilled workforce make it fertile ground for companies wishing to expand their business in the Asia Pacific region. There are substantial opportunities and support services available for those looking to base their Asia Pacific headquarters in New Zealand, invest in business, or invest in or undertake major projects within New Zealand.

The regulatory hurdles in the way of businesses operating in New Zealand are relatively low by international standards but foreign investors should be aware of them.
